Today we had a our first video conference with Dallas, Texas. It was a big success. Our international project with Texas is very eventful and we started it today.We met our pen pals for the first time today. The students were able to share something about themselves and to ask a question to their pen pal. We also learned that our friends in Texas wear school uniforms. The girls wear dresses and the boys wear a dress shirt and shorts or pants depending on the weather. Soon we will be planting our Red Emperor Tulips next week and having our first live weather report as well. This is where each student has the chance once a year to tell their Texas friends what the weather is doing on the Miramichi and our Texas friends do the same. Every month we share and learn more about what it is like in each others community. Stay tuned for more exciting news later in the month and the rest of the year.
