Pen Pals with Mr. McDonnell's Class at Mudgee Public School in Australia

One of my goals has been to help teachers take learning beyond their classroom walls. Today, Mrs. Sherman's class was excited to receive letters from their pen pals in Australia. One of the cool things was using Google Earth to take a tour of their community. Students compared and contrasted their communities. We learned we are over 8,000 miles apart. It was a lot of fun making learning so relevant for the children, while also learning about cultures. It was a great morning of celebrating diversity.
