News from TWICE...
TWO great opportunities for live two-way interactive connections are now open for schools across America to celebrate their great amazing states this spring!
Kindergarten through 3rd grade classrooms will be able to connect with another classroom in the United States and learn just what makes their state and the cities in their state so amazing!
4th through 8th grade classrooms will be matched with classrooms in other states or cities in the USA, but will need to unravel clues about who they are actually connected with to determine "where IS this amazing American state?"
Registration is open April 2 – April 24, 2014 with connections being made May 27-June 3, 2014.
