A class of 5th graders would likely find this webinar interesting. Some concepts might be over their head, but it will still be very engaging.

Patricia says:
03-Feb-12 08:56 AM

Would it be appropriate at all for 2nd grade?

Mrs. Hicks says:
03-Feb-12 08:34 AM

I would love to view this with my 5th graders, who are currently studying extreme weather. Would it be appropriate?

Rosemary Smith says:
