Bonlee, NC - The third grade students Nichole Conrad and Katie Palmer at Bonlee School have been studying other countries around the world. They have been learning about foods, clothing, and traditions found in countries such as Japan and Mexico.

On Friday, April 3, 2009, Spanish teacher Maria Gonzalez spoke to them about her life in Panama. She showed the students a PowerPoint with information on living in there. She also had dresses, musical instruments, and flags on display. Gonzalez wore a traditional, handmade dress that would be worn in Panama. The students enjoyed asking her questions and comparing their lives to hers.

"This was an excellent activity to tie together several selections our third graders had been reading on cultural awareness," commented teacher assistant Augusta Gilliland.
