Australia comes alive with a parent visit!

Some of the things the students were interested to learn. Mrs. Barnes lived in Australia for awhile and came to talk about her experiences with the 3rd grade classes. She had a presentation of pictures to show the students. They did a KWL chart before, during and after her presentation with them. They knew a little as they have studied about parts of Australia this year, but had more questions for her. Had she been swimming in the ocean? Did she eat some of the grubs? Had she seen one of the whales? How were the schools different? What was her favorite place? What was her favorite food from there?
