Storyboard Text

  • Hi Miss P! We had that Skype guest speaker in our class last week, and I was wondering why?
  • Well Jacob, there's a lot of reasons.  
  • There are so many different kinds of people with different lives.  You don't think your friends who live down the street have the same life as you, right?
  • Well, if you and Meredith have different interests and lives, imagine how different someone who lives across the world's life would be.
  • Of course not! Meredith loves playing basketball and I hate it!
  • Well, then, how do we learn?
  • It's hard to imagine, right? We can't even begin to realize all the things that people who live in other places know that we don't.
  • We connect to other classrooms! Usually online, because then it's current.  These connections are called global projects.
  • And they help us understand and learn about people in different places?
  • Yes! They also help us learn empathy for the people around us, and make sure that we all know how to help each other around the world.
