Today we were very lucky to make some new friends through Skype. We had visited their blog Perfect Preps and saw they had some pet turtles in their classroom. We are learning about what living things need to grow and change so we thought of some questions to ask Prep T about caring for their turtles.
Prep T then thought about our questions and prepared their answers. We learnt all about caring for turtles.

Thank you Miss Tonelli and Prep T for sharing with us!

I learnt that the turtles didn't stay in the tank all day. Annie

  1. I love Skype! It is such a great way to talk to friends. I also like how you can connect with other classes too. I love how you used Skype to help you with your learning. It is so cool that your friends in Prep T could share their knowledge about turtles with you. Fabulous learning!
