We used a virtual tour of Portland as part of teaching this week's 5th grade English class.
And no tour of Portland would be complete without a visit to world famous Voodoo Doughnuts!!
In this case, the "visit" became an invitation for the kids to create an Italian-themed doughnut (sadly, only a paper version!), which they had to present to their classmates in English.
The designs featured landmarks from Genoa, pesto, pasta and pizza, along with the obligatory reference to the Genoa football team. When Voodoo Doughnuts begins to explore opening an Italian branch, Genoa will now be ready with its pitch:
The kids will also be ready with a theme song, thanks to the always-requested call-and-response "moose song" to end the class!
