Skype adventures 2

When our librarian, Ms. Heywood explained that as part of our International School Libraries Month (and Global Classroom) activities we were going to Skype with other students in classrooms and libraries in other countries, we were so excited.We could hardly wait because we were so eager to start!
We really wanted to see their school and to find out if what we saw in American television shows was actually the way they seemed. Our class got to meet lots of  students from the Holbrook High School in Arizona, U.S.A. and their librarian.
We had so much fun. We didn't know very much about their state and they didn't know much about Trinidad and Tobago, so we got a chance to share what we had learned about our country and culture in our 'T&T is me!' research projects.
There are lots of Native American students at this school and they belong to many different clans and they told us about some of their customs. They even tried to get us to say something in their language, but it was very difficult.Some of them spoke Spanish and we (well, mostly Melanie) were able to show them what we had learned in class!
We thought that it was very interesting and informative and a genius way to meet people in other countries. We really felt connected to the world. It was a great day and we can't wait to do it again!
