Learning So Much on Global Day
Mrs. Mangum’s second grade class learned lots of information about other countries around the world on March 26th! We took a virtual tour of Australia and the many sights and landmarks within Australia such as Ayers Rock, the Sydney Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Pinnacles Desert. Australia is a fascinating place!
We also ‘visited’ Kenya where we learned that the students have no bathrooms, no electricity, and no running water. We realized how fortunate we are to have all of these necessities that we take for granted! Some of the buildings were made from mud and dung. Gross!
In the United Kingdom, muffins and pudding are made with pig’s blood. The more popular foods in the United Kingdom are spicy. Of course, my class’ food of choice was the fish and chips. French fries are considered chips there. It was fun ‘traveling’ around the world!
