2nd grade students were excited yesterday with the start of International Club. 21 eager students and 3 teachers will travel the world to learn more about Peru, Australia and England. Our first project was to learn how we needed a passport. Then we applied for our passport and got approved to take the 2:45 flight from Charlotte to Peru. We a flight simulator (YouTube) students boarded the plane (chairs in classroom set in rows) and it appeared that we actually were flying. Landing in Lima, Peru students exited the plane and had their passport stamped then reviewed information learned during an earlier presentation at our school about Peru. We learned they speak two languages. The flag is red and white with the crest showing a Llama, cornucopia and chichona tree . The Llama is important to the Inca’s and Peru people for the wool to make clothing. We learned about the city of Lima. We talked about the Incas. We looked at the city from google earth and saw the street view. After that we planned our project of making our own Tunic like the Inca wore. The more colorful the designs are on the cotton tunic the richer the people are. Next week we will take our plans and design our own with glitter glue, fabric, paint and other items. Then we will leave Peru in South America for Australia. How many hours will it take us? Can we go nonstop? How will Australia and Peru be alike and how are they different?
