Today Ms. Ward's class received a special call from their traveling classmate on his stop in Easter Island. He FaceTimed from right outside the Moai statues (THE REAL version of our BPE paper mache statue for Arts Day, wow!). He helped Ms. Ward's class learn that Easter Island is one of the most remote islands in the word, more than 1,200 miles from any other land mass. They also learned that Easter Island is almost as equidistant south of the equator as Austin is north of the equator! He said his favorite part was being in he southern hemisphere where the constellations are very different. He told his class his next trip is a 10 day boat ride to Antarctica! Experience is an amazing teacher! Safe travels, friend!
