PenPal Schools is a great way to connect your students globally through project-based learning!
To get started, teachers sign up and select a topic. There are a ton of topics available related to science, history, literature, math, art, foreign languages, and more! Once you've chosen a topic, sign up to create a classroom. Then, enroll your students!
Each topic includes an original project that students will create and publish in a global showcase, as well as lessons they'll need to build background knowledge. When students begin the project, they'll review a menu of project options and choose what they want to create! Lessons include a video, reading, and discussion question.
After students respond to the discussion question, they'll access a global student forum to start interacting and building relationships with PenPals around the world! Students will publish their original projects in the Showcase.
