As part of our learning about survival, we chose a project to help a living thing at our school thrive and survive. We decided to help the birds in our arboretum. We made four bird feeders, filled them with seed, and hung them in our arboretum. (We think the squirrels will enjoy them as well!)

This morning a young bird flew into our glass door and knocked itself out. We decided to reuse your travel buddy box for the bird to recover in. We just wanted to let you know that your box came in handy and that it was a special thing to reuse your box that you sent us.

Our class mailed two travel buddy eagles to our friends in Australia. They will spend the school year down under, with students there recording their adventures in journals. We received an early morning email announcing their arrival at the home of teacher, Mrs. Eleison.
Dear Mrs Arnett and students,
We have arrived safely in Australia. We are very happy to be out of our box. The trip was very long. We will let you know about our fun adventures with our new friends.
Thinking of you all,
Uncle Sam and Craig

We have completed the nonverbal portion of our first project of the year. In collaboration with friends in Colombia, Finland, and Australia we worked to overcome language barriers to share ideas. We will continue our friendship and connection throughout the year as we work to teach each other our own languages and share learning.

We have friends in Colombia, Finland, and Australia. We decided to share learning with each other, but quickly discovered that we all speak different languages. We worked together in teams to create nonverbal messages to share our learning about butterflies with our friends.
