We began by looking at a globe to find out where Mongolia is. The Greenies were surprised to find out that it is exactly half way around the world!
We read a letter written by Naomi, the teacher of a playgroup, which includes pictures of the groups children. The Greenies want to know all the children's names so we read them one by one.
We look at a woollen mat and postcards with wonderful narratives on the back of each one telling us more about their culture, home life, and more.
We display our new treasures on our classroom door including the letter, postcards...
... an example of their traditional writing....
... and a list of games played with bones from the ankles of sheep.
We loved our package and cannot wait to Pay It Forward! What a great way to learn more about other children around the world.
