The Geo-Literacy Project: Students Use Technology to Explore Their World

Teacher Eva La Mar's third graders become historians, writers, and videographers as they explore the geography and geology of their community.

    Editor's Note: Since this video was produced in 2003, teacher Eva La Mar has moved on from Tolenas Elementary School to teach third grade in Oregon. (However, she still co-directs the Geo-Literacy Project, which now offers curriculum and projects to schools worldwide.) Also, although the Tolenas students no longer visit Rush Ranch regularly, Barbara Van Putten still visits the classrooms, and Tolenas still uses the Geo-Literacy curriculum.
