This post is long overdue! During the last week of school we had a very special visit with our friend Mr. Mannell. Mr. Mannell lives in Australia, but we were able to chat with him through Skype.
Each student in the class came up with questions that they wanted to ask Mr. Mannell. We wanted to know what life was like in Australia and we wanted to learn more about the teacher who had been such a wonderful supporter of our blog this year. If you follow our blog, you will have seen the wonderful comments that Mr. Mannell leaves us. Sometimes he has so much fantastic information to share that he has to write an “extended comment” and leave us a link to the post. Three of our favourite extended comments this year were: the post comparing Canadian and Australian animals, the post about rocks and soil, and the posts about the beaches in Australia and doing our part to clean up the ocean.
It was Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 pm for us when we made the call, but it was 6:30 am on Wednesday morning for Mr. Mannell in Australia. Thank goodness Mr. Mannell is an early riser!
Mr. Mannell wrote three amazing posts about our call and even added extra information! You can read the posts by following the links below:
