Last Day of Waiting? (+0 Miles)
December 1, 2006: Migration Day 58

The team begins the month of December still in Cumberland County, TN but tomorrow's weather finally looks promising for flight. It's day 9 of waiting to cross the challenging Cumberland Ridge. Meanwhile, students in one Canadian classroom have emptied their class coin jar. Where is the money going? Click on the photo below for more photos of their real-life crane cash math lesson!

Mrs. Black's students finished another 10 paper mache cranes for their Touchdown Party.
