3rd Grade Pen Pals

This year third grade has had the opportunity to have pen pals in England.  We are working with a class of 4th graders at South Wellfield First School.  The students there mailed us letters and post cards.  They taught us about their school and facts about their country.  They asked each of our students personal questions about themselves and shared about their own lives.  They also sent candy from the United Kingdom.  After receiving their letters, we responded by making brochures about the United States.  We printed pictures of famous landmarks including Statue of Liberty and Niagra Falls.  Ours students mailed candy "Mike and Ikes" for them to enjoy.  On global day our students made head bands representing England.  We have enjoyed learning about the traditions and getting to know new friends.
