AESTHETICS:

REVIEW:
The One World Journeys team went on a trek through the Monteverde Cloud Forest in Costa Rica to study the effects of global warning and allowed students and teachers to participate via the Internet. The journey is complete, but the daily journals, photographs, lesson plans, questions and answers that were posed to the team, essays, stories, actions anyone can take to help, and related links are all available for students and teachers to explore. Be sure to check out the Eco-Gallery, "a visual journey through time and change."
