Jump$tart National Financial Education Conference


The Jump$tart Coalition announces its second annual national educator conference for Pre-K-12 teachers devoted specifically to personal finance education. The conference is intended to give classroom educators an opportunity to see, learn about, and try educational resources that can be integrated immediately into current lesson plans; to attend workshops under the three different strands of policy, curriculum/content, and personal development; and to network with leaders from finance and education.

The conference runs November 5 - 7, 2010 at the Capital Hilton, Washington, DC. Teachers may register for a subsidized price of $350 excluding travel. Ten CEUs will be awarded teachers who participate in the entire conference. Registrations are accepted on a first-come first-served basis.

Journey North


Journey North is a world-wide project in which K-12 students track wildlife migration and the changing the seasons, share their data with other classrooms, and learn about science, math, and the world around them in the process. "Journey South" (tracking fall's progress in the northern hemisphere) is beginning now, and you can use that program to prepare for spring's Journey North in your classroom.

Free registration is required to share data online. The general public is welcome to participate. The site offers standards-aligned lesson plans and resources for teachers, as well as a portal for kids.
