Q & A with Arava Institute Guests

Today students had the pleasure of participating in a Q&A with guests from the Arava Institute. I decided to have a few students create a summary of this afternoon’s event:

“We got the opportunity to meet to people from Israel and Jordan in Social Studies today. Our class asked them questions about their religion, hobbies, food they eat, and more. This was a great experience because in Social Studies we are learning about 8 universal things that make up a culture. Some of the things they do are similar to the things we do, but others things are different. Neither of the two ladies ate pork in their culture. They spoke different languages from us too! It was really nice to get to meet them and get to know about their culture. I loved that experience! Overall, our class had a fun time.”
