A Grade 5/6 class at St. Patrick’s School in Cobalt, Ontario participated in a Live on Air Google Hangout with two explorers on Thursday, June 11th. Tarran and Olie were in Lima, Peru, and have since embarked on an epic journey that will have them kayaking the Amazon River! The students had the chance to talk to the two adventurers, and asked them questions such as “What are some of the risks involved with kayaking the Amazon River?” Tarran and Olie also showed the students what their packs consisted of (essentially one other outfit), the food they will be consuming (think astronaut food!) and the route they will be taking. Find out more about their journey here, and follow Tarran and Olie as they continue on their adventure!
The teacher and his students explored the Amazon River before the live Hangout, so that they were prepared with questions – it paid off, because the two adventurers loved the poster the students made with their questions on it – their faces lit up. Watch the recorded broadcast here.
