Quiz #1

pixel.gif Talk to Wave Live from the North Pole!

Two lucky classrooms will have an opportunity to talk to Wave live from the North Pole via satellite phone!!!

Every classroom that "participates" in the online portion of North Pole Solo expedition will have the opportunity to be selected for this honor. There are a variety of ways that students can demonstrate that they have participated -- and every valid contribution, will enter their school into a drawing to be selected.

Important announcements and updates about the expedition can be read at GSN-expeditions-list.

NOTE: You may participate in any or all of the "sharing" activities.

Motivational Quotes

  • Wave's journey will certainly inspire kids. But, can kids also inspire Wave? Students are asked to submit their favorite motivational quotations. These can be "famous" quotations or they can be original creations by the students. We will compile the list on the web site to serve as inspiration to Wave and other students worldwide.
