Project Description:

Sharing cultures through a visiting soft toy.Through the exchange of a bear or other soft toy, students create journal entries to share with their partner class. The students write diary messages as if they are the visiting bear describing its experiences in the new culture. Some of the experiences included lessons learned in school, a visit home with each student, social events, meals and class activities. The student work is shared on a weekly basis with the partner class. Throughout the school year students are eager to find out what their bear is doing in the visiting country.
