Skyping with Ms. Williams' Class from the UK!

Last week, on September 17th, we Skyped with Cornist Elementary School in the UK. We had such an amazing time!

Recently, we finished editing the video from our big day. Here it is!


If that wasn't exciting enough, we received two picture from two very special students: Joe and Harry.

The work that Joe and Harry did was to follow up on our Skype lesson. They used iPads to access the comic life app ; designed a poster that would help other children in the school with fire safety.

                                                                   Harry's poster

                                                                       Joe's poster
How cool is that?!?!
Then, they created a QR code for the poster so that it could be scanned and would lead the children straight to the Fire Safety Dogs' website for more info.

(US residents: You will notice on the posters that they mention to call "999." 999 is the emergency number in the UK. Remember to call "911" here in the states. Be sure, boys and girls from the US, that you make sure that you want to go to your meeting place first before you call 911. It's important that you get out of your house and stay out!)

We loved Ms. Williams idea SO MUCH, that we are going to ask older students from all our Skype visits to do the same!

Thank you so much, Ms. Williams and to your class, for the great Skype visit and to Joe and Harry for the wonderful fire safety posters! You guys ROCK!

Until next time, stay safe! And, remember, FIRE SAFETY ROCKS!
