Antarctica Newsletter 5 - For Teachers

Kia ora koutou, it's Shelley here,

Welcome to the fifth and final Antarctica field trip newsletter. Read previous newsletters here.

1. Evaluation form 

  • If you haven't already please complete the evaluation form now on your MyLEARNZ control panel. 
  • Why?
    o We need your input to make sure we provide the highest quality LEOTC experiences and
    o Our sponsors need to know what you think of LEARNZ, so they keep paying the bills (i.e. we want to keep LEARNZ freely available)
  • Forgotten your password? Recover it now.

2. Evaluation prize results

  • All teachers who submitted an evaluation by Friday 8 December went into the field trip evaluation prize draw.
  • The prize was the books "Antarctica an Encyclopedia" and "Sean Garwood's Antarctica".
  • This prize was kindly donated by Antarctica New Zealand.
  • Congratulations to: 
    o Rachelle Hughes and her Year 5-6 class at Red Beach School!

3. Student self-assessments

  • Teachers, if you have finished with the online pre-test and post-test student self-assessment forms for this field trip, email to have your class submissions analysed and emailed to you. It's OK if just some of your students have filled them in or if they have submitted either self-assessment rather than both.

4. Field trip contributions

  • Please let us know how you used the trip with your class so we can encourage other teachers. Email your ideas to me, e.g. a web conference summary, photos of artwork, Blog links etc. and we'll add them to the website.

5. New field trips for 2018

  • You can now enrol in LEARNZ field trips for 2018.
    o check out the field trip chooser to find out more about the field trips on offer.

Ka kite anō,

LEARNZ Field Trip Teacher
