Thanks to all the families that donated soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes for my trip to Guatemala this summer. We were able to provide 300 families with hygiene items and vitamins. Our team helped build a preschool for the village of San Miguel. It was a wonderful experience and I loved the people, culture and beautiful, lush, green mountains. Since Guatemala is considered the heart of the Maya world, this was a perfect trip for our school-wide topic of Maya, Aztec, and Inca. Students are enjoying integrating this study with their Spanish language acquisition. Look for more posts during this exciting unit.
