We worked together with Miss Bardem's classroom. They are at the Morang South Primary School in Victoria, Australia.
Our writing project involved drawing a picture and then writing a description of the picture we drew. We used a Padlet to brainstorm ideas about what to draw. It was fun seeing the ideas from our partners in Australia.
After we chose our topic we drew our picture. Then it was time to write our descriptions of our picture for our partners in Australia. It took a long time to write the descriptions. We were concentrating on being very descriptive and detailed!
When we finished we sent our descriptions off to our friends in Australia and shortly after that we got their descriptions to see if we could draw their pictures. Click here to visit Miss Bardem's classroom blog to see how close we got!
