Exchanging weather reports with our friends at St. Catharine School

It's very chilly in UK! We need to wrap up warmly

It’s autumn in Lebanon.The weather is warm.Grade 5 students at KSPS participated in a project on e-languages website about the weather conditions.They observed the weather conditions in Lebanon for an entire month and wrote letters to their new grade 5 friends in St. Catherine School in United Kingdom explaining the weather conditions in Lebanon in this time of the year.They had the chance to notice the similarities and the differences in the weather conditions between Lebanon and UK.They also compared the rain levels between the 2 countries.Moreover, grade 5 students learned about the units used to measure the temperature Celsius and Fahrenheit.  
Grade 5 students were so glad to learn about other countries.They are anxious to meet their new friends in person soon.

There was a big smile on my face as I read your post Rawaa.
The activity is curriculum based and about day to day concerns.
Innovation at its best :)

My smile grows wider every time I read your comments.
All grade 5 students enjoyed this activity; they expressed their feeling freely in the letters written to their friends in UK. Some KSPS students wished it will rain and snow soon, others wished to add their new friends in St. Catherine School on facebook...
