Today we were able to connect with Mr. Kruger’s 3rd grade class in Minnesota.
It is always fun to meet new friends. Both of our classes were ready to talk about our communities. Here is some of what we learned.
They visit the Minnesota Zoo or the Como Zoo. The Como Zoo is free!
The 3rd graders can go to the Mall of America, but this isn’t just any mall. It’s the biggest mall in the United States. They even have roller coasters inside called Nickelodeon Universe! Mrs. Moore has actually been there and can verify that it would take a long time to visit all of the stores and see everything there is to see. 🙂

Many students visit their cabins on the weekends.
Their community has the largest free fair in the state. It is held in August.
Several of the students shared about some special jobs that their families have.
Gopher Sport makes athletic and fitness equipment.
Viracon-This company makes the glass and tints for windows. Their glass is being used in the new World Trade Center building in New York.
Construction and Insurance– This area provides insurance to many large companies.
Josten’s– They created the designs for the Super Bowl rings.
Mayo Clinic– This is a very special, well-known medical center that helps to diagnose and treat patients.
Their community has about 25,000 people.
We discovered that our temperatures are very similar, which makes sense because we are very close in location. They are hoping to get some snow tonight!
Thank you for helping us learn more about our world!
