Mrs. Blankley’s Language Arts class participated in the 2018 Global Read Aloud. They read the book A Boy Called Bat by Elanco K. Arnold. Mrs. Blankley’s class teamed up with a third-grade classroom from Manitoba, Canada each week via Flipgrid to discuss the chapters that were read that week. Mrs. Blankley decided to use the VR Google Expedition Kit to take her students to Manitoba, Canada so her students would have a better understanding of where the class was from. It was amazing to learn about the wildlife from that area. They were shocked that polar bears and moose lived near our friends from Canada. It was a wonderful way for the students to connect in a different way to the other class.
