Third Grade Teachers Welcomed Visitors to Malawi
Spain, France, Japan, Ukraine and Germany. These are just a few of the countries that students of all ages learned about at the International Fair held at Cuthbertson High School.
Third grade teachers welcomed visitors to Malawi. Students learned that Malawi is a country on the continent of Africa and that its inhabitants speak the national language of Chichewa. Students heard the story "Galimoto" written by Karen Lynn Williams, in which a boy named Kondi is desperate to build a galimoto. After hearing the story, students were asked to guess the meaning of 'galimoto' and were then able to build their very own 'galimoto', or...'car'.
Students, presenters, and visitors alike not only enjoyed the exhibits but also learned a bit about various countries and cultures.Full Story
