Enhancing our study of Asia, Rayan's dad taught us about Syria, including geography, dress, food, and language. Here he is showing a photo of a souk, an open-air market. He also showed us a bit of Sesame Street in Arabic, and wrote all of our names in Arabic. One student commented, "Best school day ever!"

This week we "flew" to Asia, our third continent. Our first task was some map work to gain some appreciation of how vast Asia is and how different one part of Asia is from another. Sherap and PK, visiting high school students from India, came to our classroom to tell us about their life in India and Bhutan. They can see the third-highest mountain in the world from their school windows!
