Catch of the Day - Meet Me at the Corner - 21 Apr 10

Today's tasty catch is Meet Me at the Corner

Meet Me at the Corner, Virtual Field Trips for Kids, is an interactive site which encourages individual expression and participation of children through video submissions.

Through these video pod casts Meet Me at the Corner hopes to create a global community of children learning the art of self-expression and storytelling through the use of video.

As the site grows through children’s submissions, Meet Me at the Corner hopes to highlight the people and events in towns, cities, and nations worldwide. To date, Meet Me at the Corner has videos from California, Colorado, North Carolina, Texas, and Maryland.

New educational video episodes are presented every two weeks along with links to fun websites and the Learning Corner with follow-up questions and activities.

The Learning Corner

One of the features of Meet Me at the Corner is The Big Apple Book Club which contains video book reviews made for kids by kids.

Meet Me at the Corner was founded in 2006 by Donna W. Guthrie, the author of more than twenty award-winning books for children. Donna has taught kindergarten through fifth grade.

Meet Me at the Corner is such a great place to take a virtual fieldtrip with students, they learn so much from them. The follow up activities and questions make the site a breeze to use. I highly recommend it!
