As a part of a cultural initiative to learn more about the locations of foreign countries, third-grade students at John Pearl Elementary School recently exchanged bookmarks with a class in India.

After locating India on a map and discussing the geographic and cultural differences and similarities with the country, students fashioned individual bookmarks with the help of librarian Karen Deaner. They chose materials, followed a procedure, and ultimately evaluated their bookmark while looking for ways to improve it.
