Dear Teachers:

Would your students like to have their travel questions answered on
public television???

One of the exciting online programs that Global SchoolNet offers at our
website is called “Online Expeditions.” Students can interact
“virtually” with real life explorers where ever they are in the world,
as they receive email reports, digital photos and video.

Explorer, Jeffrey Lehmann, TV host of the award winning Weekend Explorer
show (and good friend of Global SchoolNet) is making a tv show about
Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada) region — and he wants questions
from your students!!

What do you already know about Vancouver?? More importantly, what would
you like to know??

All valid questions will be answered by Jeffrey and the BEST (and most
interesting) questions will appear on one of his upcoming TV shows!!

Jeffrey will accept any questions about the general Vancouver area,
however, questions having to do with the topics are highly below are

From Jeffrey - Topics of Interest in the Vancouver Area
There are resident pods of Orcas, often mistakenly referred to as Killer
Whales. We are going on a zodiac tour to try and find a pod. Any

We also plan to go kayaking while in British Columbia. On this trip, we
expect to see eagles, sea lions, and possibly even bears (hungry from
their long winter's nap). Any Questions?

Vancouver Aquarium holds one of the world's most fascinating animals,
the Beluga Whale. We will be interviewing the caretakers here to learn
fascinating facts about this rarely seen animal. Any Questions?

We will be visiting a "First Nations" traditional totem pole carver.   
"First Nations" is how Canadians refer to the pre-European peoples that
lived in Canada. In the U.S., we often refer to them as Indians or
Native Americans. Any Questions?

We also hope to go scuba diving in what is considered some of the best
cold water diving in the world. Any Questions?

We will be "ziptreking" and walking through the tree tops in the
temperate rain forests of this lush area. Any Questions?
