Well, because of this really cool program, something really cool happened to us at the end of April that I wanted to share with you. We in Room 6 got our 15 minutes of fame! We became TV stars for the day. :)
In a nutshell, Laura Fenn, the creator of The Walking Classroom, met the director of a show about the benefits of walking and exercise that is produced by a local PBS affiliate in my area. She referred him to me, we set up the filming schedule, and 7 people armed with cameras and equipment descended upon Room 6.
It was such a great experience for my students and I. Having a camera follow you is such a trip! I felt like a Kardashian! ;) Seriously, though, it was an incredible experience.

Just excuse my classroom. It was mid-process while we transformed it into a colony....so it isn't the best looking thing ;)
In case you can't see the embedded link, here is the direct link to the site.
So what do you think? Incredible isn't it? The Walking Classroom really is such a fabulous tool to have at your disposal. Here is a link to apply for a donated set for your 4th or 5th grade class. Does anyone else have this in their room? Thoughts?
