Today at 11 a.m. some of my 8th grade students were called up on Skype from somewhere in the world. At this moment in time Microsoft has a Skype-A-Thon and the students that we met were from Melbourne, Australia and they had prepared fantastic information about their country and I was especially interested in "the lamingtons" that they described as part of Australian cuisine. Sounded lovely and like something I'll try to make in the future.
Thanks to Benjamin Lannen and grade 5/6 at Holy Spirit Community School - you did a great job! :)
