Hi! My name is Cindy Krol. I teach 6th grade Earth Science at Walsh Middle School in Framingham, Ma. This March, I will be participating in an Earthwatch Institute expedition, called "Mexican Mangroves and Wildlife," in La Manzanilla, Mexico. The purpose of this expedition is to explore the mangrove ecosystem in La Manzanilla - the wildlife that lives in it as well as the interactions between the local community and the mangroves. While on the expedition, I will be recording my experiences and sharing them here in this blog. My students will be able to read about my experiences, ask questions about my activities, and read my answers. In addition, I will be able to communicate through an audioblog - I know my students will be excited to hear my voice from so many miles away!

I am excited to bring this current scientific research into my classroom and to show my students some of the real life applications of the science they are learning in school. Please check back here often to read about my experiences in La Manzanilla!

Hey Ms. Krol, so glad you got out of Boston without too much trouble. All this snow and slush must make getting to sunny Mexico all the sweeter. We will be checking your blog every day. Look for some good questions to come your way on Tuesday. We can't wait to see what you're up to! Be safe. Mrs. Reedy

Hi Ms. Krol,
Sounds like you are having a great time! Sorry you got sick. I hope you are taking lots of pictures so you can teach me about all these birds! Today we had a half day with lots of good teacher discussions! What's the temperature there? If you find any good maps maybe we can use them in science and social studies! We miss you!
