In the ClassroomHave cooperative learning groups explore specific areas of this site and create a multimedia presentation to share with the class. Have students create a UtellStory, reviewed here. This site allows users to narrate a picture. Challenge students to find a photo (legally permitted to be uploaded), and then narrate the photo as if it were a news report. Or, bring even more geography skills into the project by having groups create a Mapskip (reviewed here) showing exactly WHERE the tundra is located (with audio stories and pictures included)!
