Second Graders Learns About Israel
Lani Levine has lived around the world over the past 25 years and is currently residing in Israel. She recently stopped by Weddington Elementary to show second graders what life is like in Israel. Her slideshow included many famous areas and also pictures of common people and activities.
Students were very interested in the Dead Sea when they saw pictures of people floating with no devices! She brought coins and bills, photos, and books. Using the document camera and a book in Hebrew, she explained how the language is read from right to left. Each child had their name written in Hebrew before they presentation was over.
