Ewww, cool!

February 23, 2011 - It was fiesta time at Carpenter Elementary last week as students and teachers went on a journey "South of the Border" into Mexico and down through Central America.

The children explored the Latin American culture of today, as well as the history of yesteryears, through a variety of activities. As a result, the main hallway at Carpenter has been transformed into a colorful, interactive Latin American walkway for all to enjoy.

On Tuesday, the children donned handmade serapes for a trip to On The Border Mexican Grill in Auburn Hills, where they enjoyed Mexican cuisine. On Thursday, the kids attended a "Live Animals of Central America" assembly, where they got an up-close look at animals that inhabit the countries of Central America.

Finally, just when the children thought the week couldn't get any more exciting, each classroom was treated to a surprise piñata.

All in all, whether it was in the classroom, music room, gymnasium or through their intricate hands-on artwork, the children had a fun learning experience at Carpenter Elementary's "South of the Border: Exploring Latin America" Intersession.
