Blogging is a great way to connect with other classes, learn about geography, and make new friends.
Recently, we got a lovely package from our blogging buddies in the southern hemisphere!
Thank You, Mr. Webb and class from New Zealand!
Thank you New Zealanders for the grand maps, stickers, calendar, posters, and pens. They are all wonderful things to have in our classroom. We especially like the the roadsigns and the map. Where we live, you do not see a sign that says, "PENGUINS and SEALS next 500 nautical miles."
In addition, we do not see any kiwis or kiwi signs. We have kiwi, the fruit, but not the bird. We looked up facts about kiwis on World Book Online. Kiwi are interesting birds. They are flightless and nocturnal. We guess that you probably don't see kiwis during school.
We also like the posters of the school mural and your QR code. We have murals on our walls too. However, our murals are all realistic animals from this area. The students painted the murals years ago.
The map of your neighborhood has a really big volcanic National Park. Does the volcano ever erupt or is it dormant?
What is the mascot of your school? Is it a kiwi?
