On Friday November 16, fifth graders went to visit our Equal This buddies in Colchester at Jack Jackter Elementary School. While we were there, students got to spend a little more time getting to know their buddies. Each student created a quilt square with information about themselves (name, nationality, hobbies, favorite food, what they would like to change about the world). Teachers then mixed up the quilt squares to make two quilts, one to stay in our buddies classroom and one for our own.
After finishing our quilts, fifth graders got to see a performance from Poetry In Motion. They talked to us about how hip hop dance started and showed us different hip hop dance moves. After their performance, students got to dance a little themselves. We had a blast!
