Colombia, South America
They have gold and I love gold. So I want to go to Colombia. They dance so good. I want to learn how to dance like they did. They have really, really long dresses, they don’t even trip over their dresses. They danced barefoot in Colombia. I think that is AWESOME! They even have snow-topped volcanoes. That’s AWESOME to because you think volcanoes are hot and would melt the snow.

Conor- 2nd grade
We began our journey in the Amazon (home for 10 % of all the animals in the world); we continued and arrived where the beaches of Atlantic and Pacific Ocean are. We learned that Colombia is the only country to border two oceans in South America. We kept going and flew on top of the snow covered volcanoes and the peaks of the Mountains of the Andes. When we passed over the grasslands, the students were able to appreciate the beautiful sunsets that would illuminate the birds’ way home. Finally, we came to the desert and admired the diversity of colors of the sand and were delighted with its’ musical rhythms.
The country is full of hard-working people who help in the manufacture of export products, for example: coffee, gold, emeralds, banana, flowers and more. Colombia has many natural resources but it’s people are it’s main asset.
