Skyping with New Brunswick

After many hours of problem solving and a few trips to Staples, we were finally able to Skype with our Smartboard!  Many thanks to our vice-principal, Mr. McLean, who finally got it all working yesterday.  This morning we had a Skype appointment with a gr. 4/5 class in Cambridge Narrows, New Brunswick.  In Social Studies, we are comparing different communities.  Talking with Ms. Jones’ class allowed us to learn a lot about the community of Cambridge Narrows.  We learned that there is no “Main Street” there, only a highway.  And that the nearest Wal-Mart is in Fredericton, an hour away by car.  They have one restaurant, The Holiday, but no McDonalds.  There are around 800 people who live there.
