I just wanted to thank you so very much for the Globetracker's Mission adventure! I am teaching gifted 3rd grade students about Geography, and this site has been incredibly helpful. The students thoroughly enjoy the interaction provided by the site. We started out using the Smartboard and reading and exploring the weekly episode together, voting in mass. Now, each student logs on individually. Each week, I create a brief interactive page for them to answer questions so I can ensure they read every part, not just rushing to cast their vote. They especially like the text messages, interaction with Google Earth, last week's AIRPLANO site, and the expression, "Holy Idaho!" I totally love the exposure and connection each child makes, especially when you visit their chosen country. I can not thank you enough for your expertise and time with each weekly adventure.
