During the 2016-17 school year, students from FMS had the opportunity to work with educators from The National Geographic Society and Google Earth as they teamed up to empower students to think about the world beyond their classrooms. 


Students from Mrs. Mullins' and Mrs. McClure's class participated.  The GCSD Coordinator for Instructional Technology, Natalia LeMoyne brought this work to Guilderland.  Students and teachers from FMS have been highlighted on National Geographic's site.  Their works emphasize global awareness in their classrooms by exploring National Geographic’s Out of Eden Walk project in Google Earth.


A video was created by the National Geographic team to illustrate how technologies such as Google Earth can greatly enhance and extend the learning experience.  Go to the link to view the video:
