Join The Oceans Day #SkypeBunceeBuddies With Others Around The World!

I just love the #SkypeBunceeBuddies projects!  

They are such a special way to connect children to wonderful opportunities to be creative while learning something new and exciting.  Also, one of the best parts....they give all of us a chance to collaborate and connect with others around the world. 
This time, Skype in the Classroom and Buncee are joining forces to celebrate World Oceans Day on June 8.  
Classrooms will be partnering up to Skype and share their promises to project our oceans and marine life using Buncee and the Global Goals for Sustainable Development from the United Nations. 

Here is how the Oceans Day #SkypeBunceeBuddies project works....
  1. Have students choose one of the United Nations’ Global Goals for Sustainable Development related to protecting our oceans and marine life. An example would be, #6. Clean Water and Sanitation. Make a Buncee on how to support the Goal and why it’s so important.
  2. Create a story on Buncee about protecting the oceans. You may choose to write a realistic story of people working to save the world's oceans, a story from the point of view of the animals who live in the ocean, or you might choose to write about an idea that's all your own!
  3. Explain why it’s important to celebrate World Oceans Day and choose one action you’ll take to protect our oceans this year.
Here is a beautiful example above. 
     4. Connect with a classroom over Skype around World Oceans Day, June 8th. Once you register, we will send you a link to join a Skype Group Chat where you can connect with a classroom and set up a Skype call. 
You can sign up and read more about the Oceans Day #SkypeBunceeBuddies here

And don't forget to follow @Buncee @SkypeinClassroom and #SkypeBunceeBuddies on social media. You will find ideas and people sharing soon.  

We can't wait to SEA what you create!
