Grade 3 visits Lethbridge, Placentia, Lab City, and Fogo!
Using the wonderful Google Earth Mme. Daley's Grade 3 class took a quick tour of NL today, visiting some of the places they had studied in their textbook, taking time to visit St. John's, Lethbridge, Placentia, Labrador City, and Fogo Island. They were able to see the preplanned layout of Lab City, as well as exactly how isolated Fogo can be. Viewing the images on the Google Earth gave students a look at what these communities look like in the present, and some other exciting images, like local churches, icebergs that look like seahorses and polar bears, and even some old military bunkers.
