Edutopia: Project-Based Learning

Click on the following link for an example of a truly wonderful 21st Century learning experience.  This is a link to Edutopia, The George Lucas Educational Foundation.  In this 5-minute video, a third grade class in Maryland has been working on a Journey North project to track the migration habits of monarch butterflies.  The students in this class are applying the skills that they learned in math, reading, writing, and science to complete the project.
