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.
