Week 2: Let’s Comment!

Last Thursday and Friday, we got busy connecting with other students by commenting on their blogs, especially Ms. Wellington’s class in New Zealand! First, we reviewed commenting guidelines especially regarding quality, positivity, and safety.  Then we were ready to read blog posts of students who were 8728 miles away and 17 hours ahead of us!

After that, we compiled a list of questions for students in different countries. We’d love to hear responses to our questions!
