Trip to Chile

My husband had the amazing experience of visiting Chile through his work.  While he was there we were fortunate to skype with him with the 3 hour time difference.  He was able to talk with 6th, 1st and 5th graders.

The 6th graders learned about the capital, Santiago, and 1/3 of the country's population lives there (about 6 million).   The 1st graders were intrigued about the Pacific Ocean asking what it looked like and what fish live in it.  The 5th graders enjoyed learning about the Andes Mountains and how large and vast they are.  He was able to share some pictures of Santiago and the vineyards near the Capital.

What a great experience for our students!
