Mrs. Shanker's 6th grade class has been studying the geography and culture of Ancient China. The students made skits with handmade puppets on China to supplement what they'd read and experts on China came to visit their class.
A few of the 6th graders: Maggie, Lia Rose, Therese and Paige wrote about their visit:
"On Wednesday, February 28th, some experts on China from Offutt Air Base visited our class. We want to thank Mrs. Wei Whitbeck, TSgt Autumn Walker, TSgt Carlos Centero and Mr. Kim for sharing their knowledge of China with us. They taught us how to write some characters. We unscrambled words. We also received red envelopes symbolizing luck with Chinese candy inside. TSgt Carlos Centero had just returned from a trip to China and he answered a lot of our questions.He was able to walk on The Great Wall of China. We learned a lot about China. We hope to visit China one day!"
