On Tuesday, we Skyped with our Quad Blogging Buddies in Australia. Interestingly enough, there were some major differences between the two classes!
1. It was not Tuesday at 2:00 P.M. in Australia,
it was Wednesday at 9:00 A.M.!
2. 2KM and 2KJ's day was beginning, and Mrs. Yollis' class was ending!
3. It was autumn in Australia. In fact, it started on March 1, while it is still winter in the northern hemisphere and won't become spring until March 20. That is the day of the Vernal Equinox.
4. The students in 2KM and 2KJ are novice bloggers, while the bloggers in Mrs. Yollis' are more experienced. Mrs. Yollis' students have been in school since September, and 2KM and 2KJ just started school in February!
|Surprise greeting from AA and BB, great contributors to our blog!|
