I found a neat project on iEarn called, A Day in the Life. This project has kids document what a day is like in their shoes. I would have my class document a typical school day using the Flip Camera and a digital camera to take pictures. The class can upload the video and pictures to the projects forum and then compare their life with students from other countries.
I plan to implement this project when we study Egypt, although I think we could use this anytime really! It would be great for the class to be able to compare others lives to their own and truly learn about the differences around the world! I think it is amazing that technology allows us to "travel" across the world without even leaving our classroom!
