Today we held our first humanitarian club meeting at Reynolds Elementary. We talked about humanitarian work, global awerness, current world issues, and how we can learn more about the world around us. I was surprised to hear that the kids are very aware of ISIS and Ebola. We talked about how those issues affect us in the United States and the rest of the world.
We met our partner school in Nairobi, Kenya and looked at some picutres they sent showing their school and lives. We talked about how we are different, how we are the same, and how we can work together.
We also started our MONSTER ECHANGE. Our kids drew a picture of a monster. They then had to write a description of the monster. We will send the description ONLY to our partner school. Using the description the children in Kenya will draw a monster. When we meet up to Skype we will be able to show each other the monsters we have come up with! It will be fun to see how they are the different and the same!
