Hi Will, I'm in Sydney Australia and about to start a unit on national parks ( with a group if 10 year olds). This may fit into your geography focus. I'm sure our kids would be keen to hear about any national parks in your region, likewise we can share what our geographical region is like. Drop me a message if you are keen. Regards Jed

Hi Will,

it sounds great. I recently found out that I will mainly be teaching 10th grade (that is 15-16 year-olds) but since I will be teaching English and one of the competences the students should develop is the understanding of cultural differences (and likes) to Norway and English speaking countries I think it would be a great idea to cooperate in some way. I'll be happy to hear from you again!

Regards

Anna
