Skyping with Ireland

On Thursday, December 8, 2011, first graders at Harris Elementary School skyped with children in Ireland at Powerscourt School.  A former Chase High graduate, Maggie Millwood is currently doing her student teaching at this school in Ireland. This activity kicked off the First grade unit on Christmas Around the World.  Both classrooms asked and answered questions regarding Christmas traditions.  At the close of the skyping session, each classroom sang a traditional Christmas song for each other.  This was a wonderful opportunity for the students to learn about another culture through the use of technology.
