We have to pretend that we are in another country and figure out what our lives would be like. We have to look at schooling, transport, work, temperature.language, pets, housing and other things that we take for granted in our everyday lives.
The children should be able to describe how and why it would be different. We hope to be able to be in contact with people from another part of the world, if we can and ask them questions.
If you have any contacts at home with children that go to school in another country please let us know.
This is an amazing website that takes you through 'a day in the life of' for children from other countries. We sure are lucky in our country.

Google Earth is a great app to see what the country looks like, but we want to know more than what it looks like and what its flag is like
