Fun visit from Guatemalan MS student

An exchange student from Guatemala visited our fourth grade class on Friday November 19th, 2010.

We learned about the Geography of Central America and about the "capiruchos", a toy the Mayans used to play with thousands of years ago. Then we got to make our own "capirucho"!

Now, that was a fun class!
