     I would be interested in chatting with other classes also.  We live
in Iowa so our time zone is Central Daylight Time.  I teach 3 blocks of
Science and Communications.  Block 1 is 8:35-10:00,  Block 2 is
10:00-11:20, and 
Block 3 is 12:35 - 1:45 pm.
     We have been learning about and following the Mars Global Surveyor
and the Pathfinder/Sojourner.  We also have our Red Rover up and running
doing some activities with that. If anyone is up and running or wants to
connect with us let me know.  We are using last year's rovers and I plan
to eventually dismantle them so this year's students can design their
own later in the year.
    We will be participating in Weather Worlds also.
    I also teach  units on electricity, matter, magnets and motors,
simple machines, not to mention other units.  It would be fun to connect
in some way.
    Right now we've been concentrating on MGS and MPF, but my first unit
will be matter, then electricity, then magnets and motors, and then
simple machines.
    I think it's neat when students can interact from other parts of the
country/world.  If interested let me know and we can do some planning.
