A few years ago, we had a curriculum review that changed some of our curriculum in second grade.  Our students now learn about Ghana, which is a great opportunity for them to learn about other countries they would not normally learn about. Students were lucky because they got the opportunity to Skype with people from Ghana and ask about life there.  It was awesome to see our students interact and I’m so grateful that the teachers in my school work to creatively engage students in meaningful learning!
