Mr. Pete DeMeritt returned to our class to share his experiences about his trip to Belize, in Central America. He was a participant in the Belize-UNH Teacher Program and delivered some ABC books from our 7th grade class. (see previous post) Our books were enjoyed by students in the rural Toledo District. This is the 23rd year that we have exchanged projects.
Mr. DeMeritt was able to bring back a gift from one of the classes. It was their own ABC book about Belize! He read each page aloud to us and was able to share about each student who created the page. The pages had information about their food, animals or ways of life. Each page reminded him of an event or story on his trip. It was a unique way to share. Our imaginations could create our own 'picture' of each child and the country.
