StoryBook Adventure – Connecting Children from Portugal and South Africa Through Global Literacy

7th grade students at the Carlucci American International School of Lisbon meet their new friend in Makahlule Village, South Africa.

Sharing to Learn coordinated the global literacy project, StoryBook Adventure, pairing 5th grade students in Makahlule with 7th grade students in Lisbon.  We collected photos and gathered information on children in the village and then sent that over to Lisbon, where the children were learning how to write fiction.  The 7th graders in Portugal used the information sheets and photographs of their new friends in South Africa for the protagonists in the stories they were crafting.
