The Teddy Bear Adventure Returns!

Our class has begun a new adventure – a teddy bear adventure!  This is a global project that we will be participating in all year.  Last summer I met a new friend from Argentina – Ms. Kaczorkiewicz.  She gave me a teddy bear from her class – Alicia Felpudita.  This teddy bear learned a lot about Canada and our Wyevale community as she traveled to many of our homes last year.  She would like to learn a lot more and bring that knowledge back to the students in Argentina!

In return we will be sending our teddy bear – Maple the Moose to Argentina to learn all about life in that country. Last year Maple had a very difficult time traveling to Argentina. It turns out that it is not an easy place to get to. Derrick the Dear had to go and find Maple and bring him home.  Hopefully Maple will have better travels this year!

Throughout this project students will be writing from the point of view of Alicia, conducting inquiries about various countries and making comparisons to our community, interacting with students from around the world, and building global awareness.

We have set up a blog to document this project and will be adding to it weekly.  You can access the blog from the page at the top of this blog titled, “A Teddy Bear Adventure”. You may access it directly by going to the following web address:
