Have you considered reaching out to the global educational community via a blogging or other web tool? Here is one site that you might want to consider: The Monster Exchange. This site is "designed to encourage the development of reading and writing skills while integrating the Internet into the classroom curriculum. The real challenge is that a remotely drawn monster is created only from reading the description! At the end of the project, both the original and duplicate drawings are digitized and published on the web in the Monster Exchange."
This would be a great project to undertake as we close in on the end of October. I signed up as a classroom of one to test the site and was matched with 3 potential classrooms - all within the United States. If someone would like to partner with me, let's see if we can begin a global exchange!
