Park Ranger Mel

What an AWESOME experience this morning in 'theONE6'.

Having nearly finished our #NZreadaloud2 'The Wolf in the Wardrobe' by Susan Brocker.... it was the perfect time to Skype with the Park Ranger at Yellowstone Park in America....with us being nearly finished the book and Lupa's flight back to the States so close!

So at 9am we called 'Ranger Mel' and away we went. Mel has connections with New Zealand (her husband from Christchurch) and other family...Ranger Mel knew a lot about our country and we discussed a WIDE range of topics...including our own National Parks, native animals, and Rotorua!

As Ranger Mel shared information about Yellowstone Park...a few of us took notes (in our own way) so we could use them to create a presentation of what we found out. I had the kids write some questions on the whiteboard and as Ranger Mel gave us the answers I jotted them onto the board. I also added extra interesting information she shared. Here is what the board looked like at the end of our Skype.

In reply to this post, I would like all 'theONE6ers' to tell me the MOST INTERESTING thing you found out about Yellowstone Park or the animals in it.
