-- Submit your own virtual field trip by creating a video with your students highlighting animals and plants in your community to share with students around the world.
-- Learn about endangered species like the leatherback turtle, and more.
In addition, check out eFilms at ePals http://www.epals.com/blogs/efilms/default.aspx to watch documentaries on biodiversity and other topics by professional film makers. Each video has thought-provoking questions that can serve as in-class discussions or homework after watching the video. Students also can review the videos, submit comments online and rate the films for their peers to see.
