Mrs. Amann's fourth grade language arts classes had guest visitors recently. The students read, My Librarian is a Camel, about how different countries struggle to have books due to different reasons, such as people living in remote areas or impassable roads. One student's parents and grandparents grew up in Peru, one of the countries mentioned in the book. Her grandmother is a retired teacher in Peru and currently resides there but came to Goshen for a visit! The family talked about what life was like in Peru in the past and present. The students learned about the schools, food, housing, technology use, geography, and much more. They brought the students a Peruvian dessert, Pionono, to taste. The students really loved this one in a lifetime experience. Thank you to the Villavicencio family for taking the time to share their knowledge and experiences in Peru with us!
