Earth Day 2010 Online Posters

We have done our share of wasted resources by our weekly poster boards and lap booking. For Earth day 2010 we have found a site to help eliminate this waste. Glogging, online posters!

My children and I are still in the "learning" phase of how this all works, so please be merciful with us!

The assignment for Tyra and Jacob was to make a poster board about recycling. Johnny and I worked on one for Earth Day so that I could learn how this all works. I have found this to be a very fun way to research and learn! However, there is a way to "upgrade" the account and add class projects. I would LOVE to do this, but at $99 a year I guess I can do without it.

My children enjoyed it. Tyra likes learning new technology on the computer and my older children enjoyed this much better than a regular poster board. I still am a bit old fashion and enjoy cutting, pasting, and painting on poster board. I liked the idea of producing less waste! I also have a hard time disposing of our poster boards and this adds clutter to our home, so all around it has been a nice experience. We are going to continue to glog, but I think we will still do an old fashion hands on project from time to time also!

Please check out our glogs and let us know what you think!
