    Global Kids student Brianna Sears, 17, cools off in the spray of a fountain at the end of the day in Marine Park, Brooklyn, New York, Thursday, July 26, 2012. The Global Kids team created coded trackable items they will add to found geocaches, with the hope that the items will travel geographically from one geocache to another. The trackables--which look like dog tags and called "travel bugs"--are placed in the geocache, and have a reference code with instructions provided by the Global Kids team that can be found online at geocaching.com. The team assigned a social issue to each trackable, and asked the geocache community if they thought the issue--medical marijuana, immigration, etc.--was important to the upcoming presidential campaign. If an interested geocache community member agreed, they were instructed to move the trackable as close to the Washinton D.C. area as they could. If they disagreed, they were instructed to move the geocache away from Washtington D.CEmile Wamsteker for Education Week

    Story Pirates actor Peter McNerney, left, waits offstage for his cue during an "Idea Storm" at Little Falls Township Public School number 2, in Little Falls, New Jersey, Friday, January 13, 2012. During the Idea Storm, the Story Pirates teach children the fundamentals of storytelling, first by discussing the basic structure of a story and then asking for ideas from students. Each time a student contributes an idea, the actors respond on the fly, incorporating it into an ongoing improvisational comedy sketch. Emile Wamsteker for Education Week
