Hello, friends. We have a special guest writer this week, bringing you some Costa Rican animal facts. Beanie has been practicing her Google research skills at school and at home: at TIDE Academy she is searching for facts about the Tenorio volcano in central Costa Rica. Her teacher wants the class to find not only facts about Costa Rican attractions, but also practical info to plan a visit, such as opening hours. I hadn’t thought about online search as a skill that kids needed to formally learn, but of course it’s one of the most important skills to have these days. It’s probably a very good thing for society if our children are now taught at least the basics of how to find information from credible sources.
This is a great list of fun animals I'm still sad I didn't get to see a sloth up close while I was in Costa Rica three years ago.
