Ms. Pam Keller, one of our dedicated substitute teachers and volunteers here at Longfellow, went on a trip of a lifetime to Antarctica this past week. The journey alone was over 7,000 miles involving 2 plane flights and a National Geographic ship!
Ms. Thomas' 1st grade class was able to have a very exciting, live question and answer session via Skype with Ms. Pam while she was in Antarctica and discussed the animals that inhabit that area.
We'd like to thank Dr. Paul Berkman of Cambridge University who was onboard the National Geographic ship and helped make this possible!
Take a look at this video footage of Ms. Pam encountering a Gentoo penguin!
