CLARK, NJ - Frank K. Hehnly School teachers incorporated watching eagle cams into their remote learning plans. Students are observing eagles from home and writing their observations in their journals.
Ms. Sarah Kasko, FKH First Grade Teacher stated, “My class mainly watches the South West Florida eagle cam. Harriet and M15 are expecting two eggs to hatch within the next week or two. Although we physically can’t watch the cam together, students are thrilled that they get to observe at home.”
Kasko reached out to the South West Florida cam owner, Andrew Pritchett, and explained that her students were passionate about his eagle cam. The next day, she received an email back. He thanked the students for taking the time to observe their eagle cam and wished them luck as they continue to learn remotely. Students were ecstatic to receive the response.
“This email provided the students with a purpose to observe and write. It also created another real world connection to keep them engaged,” said Kasko.
