Destination: Galapagos Islands Cyber Field Trip

Special Contest for Teachers

In December 1998, we challenged teachers to come up with their best original lesson plans related to scientific study in the Galapagos Islands. We received some great entries, the best of which are featured here. The submitting teachers were each awarded a limited-edition Destination: Galapagos Islands T-shirt.

We'd like to thank everyone who participated, and we encourage all teachers to use these innovative activities in their classroom!
