Kevin Tavares and his fourth graders at Old Hammondtown School in Massachusetts built a website to share what they were learning with the rest of the world. Mr. Tavares installed a location tracking device on the page that assigns a red dot to the country of each visitor. The students wanted to get website hits from all seven continents so Mr. Tavares contacted U.S. scientists working in Antarctica and was put in touch with PolarTREC teacher Amber Lancaster. The article outlines their subsequent online connection and activities with Mr. Tavares's classroom.
