Veteran's Day Hangout Connecting With Afghanistan

It was an honor and a privilege to have soldiers who are stationed in Afghanistan speak to our fifth grade students on Veteran’s Day using Google Hangout. Each class that participated was able to ask student led questions to military personnel stationed overseas. The responses created an atmosphere of utmost respect for our armed services. Job descriptions and daily routines opened the eyes of many students to the demands of being a soldier. A meaningful lesson was implemented through the use of technology and a group of soldiers who wanted to make a difference in the lives of our future. +Cassie Herndon
