With the "What Can You See?" project, our students at Lorna Jackson Public School have been able to not only develop a great understanding about the world around them, but in fact, the project has grown to the point where our students can learn about and appreciate different cultures around the world.
As part of this new and exciting chapter of "We Can See" books, one of our JK students (T.B.) recently got back from a trip to Egypt where he was visiting family. He was very excited to share his pictures with us and tell us stories about what he saw there and where he had visited. We had offered to compile his photos and create a digital book to share as part of the project on his family's behalf.
We thank T.B. and his family for collecting these wonderful photographs and for letting us put them together into a digital book to share with all of you!
This video, along with our video from A.C. and her family in China, has generated lots of discussion in our classroom as students have begun to see connections from these "We Can See" books to other books found in our library and at home. T.B. is very proud of where his family comes from and his ability to teach us new things about his culture and country!
Even though the end of the year is approaching rather quickly, we still encourage our families to participate in this wonderful learning opportunity well into the summer months!
