Craniac PenPals in Kentucky Send Gifts
to students at Harriet Todd PS, Orillia, ON, Canada

Mrs. Black's students in Canada opened a terrific package from their pen pals in Mrs. Trout's class at John F. Kennedy Montessori School in Louisville, KY. The Kentucky students sent great Louisville brochures to show the Ontario students where they live.

They sent photos taken by Mrs. Trout's husband the Indiana flyover event. The students in Canada looked at them on their classroom computer.
They even sent a DVD of the cranes' Indiana flyover event, and the visit to Mrs. Trout's classroom by some of the migration team. Louisville, Kentucky is near one of the stopovers on the migration route. Mrs. Trout and her class started the idea of writing letters to ExxonMobil to raise money to help pay for the migration! Many other classrooms, including Mrs. Black's, have followed their wonderful example.
