This Earth Day, Thursday April 22, 2010, between 9am and 2pm, EcoBuddies is challenging BC Elementary School classrooms to a Scavenger Hunt that focuses on Endangered Animals! Use one or several computers to log into EcoBuddies (www.ecobuddies.com) with your classroom and search the green-inspired world of EcoBuddies for answers to the clues listed below. Teachers, please email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of your school and grade of your class.
FIRST PRIZE: The classroom that emails the correct answers to the clues first will get a $150 gift certificate to a bookstore of their choice!

Answers to the clues will be distributed throughout the EcoBuddies world on April 22, 2010 (not before this date). Look for the animals that match the clues, click on the animal, and get the information needed to answer the clue. Note: For time's sake, no answers will be in the Eco-Explorer's Hut due to the large amount of school content classroom's would have to go through within the hut.
If you do not have time to create log-in accounts for yourself of your class please email EcoBuddies at email@example.com or call us at 604-568-5189 and we will make up ten accounts for you.

Penguins are amazing creatures! Here are some awesome facts about them!
1. Penguins spend half of their life in the ocean!
2. In 25 mya (like, a long time ago, like THOUSANDS of years ago) there were 5 foot penguins! Ah!
3. Both mom and dad penguins take care of baby chicks, keeping them warm and snuggled in a pouch by their feet.
3. When penguins are swimming in the water they move like birds flying through the air- this shows how amazing and graceful they are as swimmers!

WOW! CHECK OUT WHAT THIS SUPER COOL SCHOOL DID TO HELP PANDAS!
Students and staff members at Sky Vista Middle School have raised more than $1,200 in pennies for the Pennies 4 Pandas program, which benefits the endangered giant panda. The money will be used to replant bamboo forests in China which were destroyed by the May 2008 earthquake. Bamboo is the giant panda’s primary food source.
Sixth-grader Dylan Hobson brought in 7,000 pennies by himself!
“It made me feel really good because I knew I was making a difference in the world,” said Hobson. “It took a while though. I had two backpacks full of pennies and they were so heavy!”
Eighth-grader Kiana Mun-Williams said she learned that giant pandas are an important part of the earth’s ecosystem and was glad to help them.
“Pandas are adorable and we don’t need anymore extinct animals,” Mun-Williams said. “We worked as a team and had fun.”
Students, teachers or organizations who would like information or want to participate in Pennies 4 Pandas can go to www.pennies4pandas.org or call (303) 933-2365. General information about the history, mission and programs of Pandas International can be found at www.pandasinternational.org
This is sooooo cute. Check it out. Pandas International is a wonderful organization that helps kids and adults support Pandas! Pandas are an endangered animal so they need lots of love and support!

Stay Cool and Go Green!
