Per a request from the fifth grade teacher in our school, I am searching for a school outside of the United States to connect with our fifth grade students in New Jersey, USA. They are studying the concept of cultures and would like to connect with students from the same age, but from a different culture than their own to get a deeper understanding of the similarities and differences. Unfortunately we do not have a language program in our school, so the students only speak English, but are willing to learn some words and phrases in another language as part of this project. If you would like to make a connection, please let me know. We have webcams in the classroom and maybe we could even set up a video conference on skype. The students have monitored email addresses and we could also use a blog that I have created called Global Friends to share ideas and pictures. We look forward to hearing from you.
