Diwali and Halloween

This morning 1st graders from Three Oaks Elementary are connecting with students from Kothari International School, Noida, near New Delhi, India.

The classes each shared about an October holiday – Diwali for India, and Halloween for the United States. Both schools shared a little about their area, visuals showing the food and dress for the holiday, and even a song. Three Oaks shared their Fall Poem, complete with actions! Each class had nice visual demonstrations for each other.

We connected at 8:40 am our time in the morning. The students had just arrived at school. In India, it was Friday evening, about 6:10 pm and the students gathered at a home with access to videoconferencing.

Here are some of the questions they asked each other:

  • Do you carve pumpkins in India?
  • What does your food taste like?
  • What is Halloween all about?
  • What is the weather like there?
  • Is it snowing there?

The students had a great time interacting with each other. Our students are going to study Diwali more to understand it further. We look forward to future collaborations with our friends in India.
