Thanks for telling me about the panoramic view from Mt. Everest! It's stunning, and I am certain the kids will thoroughly enjoy seeing it projected on our screen! I love making lessons feel as real as possible. Google Earth is practically my BFF. We're pretty tight!
Anyway, as I was looking at your website, I had an A-ha moment! How cool would it be if you made a salt-dough cast of the Yeti's foot to show the kids?! I mean, think about what scientists really do! Assuming that there would be a great deal of ice in the Himalayas, one could assume that they would create a cast of the creature's foot as "proof" to bring back to their labs and investigate in-depth. It would be something tangible to bring back to combat naysayers. I was also thinking about showing pictures of alleged Yeti footprints next to human feet and ice-picks to make it more real and less mythical.
Of course, in this case, you would have to change the scenario. You would have to say they were armed with a camera, an ice pick, and plaster. Ha! Still, I thought it might pique the interests of my little scientists if they got to mimic what real scientists do... especially my little archeologist. She would eat it up with a spoon!
Once again, thanks for sharing such a fun idea!
