In 2KM and 2KJ, we love to connect and learn with our friends around the world.
Today we are excited to start a new global project called Our World, Our Stories.
We have a blog http://ourworldourstories.edublogs.org/ where all the blogging buddies will meet up and learn together for the next seven weeks.
The students are all from junior primary classes and are from three different continents and six different countries.

How will it work?
A different class will “lead” a topic on the blog each week. The lead class will publish posts and reply to comments.
Topics will be based on students’ interests such as school games, hobbies, food, local environment etc.
The other classes will read the posts, possibly publish their own posts, and leave blog comments.
The students will be able learn a lot from getting to know how the other classes live their lives.
We plan to have a special celebration in December to finish our project!
If you want to keep up to date with how the fun and learning unfolds, there is a “subscribe via email” box on the right hand side of the Our World, Our Stories blog.
We encourage all members of the 2KM and 2KJ community to get involved!
