We had fun during our video conference with Mrs. Deyenberg and her class. We had so many things we wanted to do and say but not enough time to do them all. We introduced ourselves and learned that we did have some things in common with our friends in Alberta, Canada.
We were given homework. We were asked, "What is a chinook ?" We learned that a chinook is a warming wind that comes from the Rocky Mountains in the Pacific Northwest. It can last for a few hours up to a few days. The name is also from the Native American people who lived near the Columbia River.
We have been working hard on learning a lot of the detailed climate differences and reasons for them. We have a lot to share at our next video conference call.
Here is Mrs. Deyenberg's blog about our event.
Too much fun happening in our classrooms! Hope the same is true for you.
Have a great weekend.
