Yesterday, we had two national activities – Guatemala and Australia!

Australia let us write a story using Aboriginal symbols and gave a clinic on how to play Australian football.  The Australian football is similar in shape to the American football, but is much bouncier.  We also tried Vegemite and learned a song and a dance.

 Thanks Mates, for a great day!

Guatemala started their activities with Loteria, a Bingo game with Spanish words.  Later that evening, we had pinatas, a video and an amazing traditional dance.  And one of the best parts – frozen chocolate covered bananas for dessert!
