What a great teaching day. We did a project together about Peace (for “Project Global Peace”) and what it means for Morrocan students.
They loved our iEarn Hands for Peace Banner and were eager to be in a picture with the banner!
Students also make Peace posters for our Alaskan students. They were so happy to share PEACE with Alaska.
Students are hard at work drawing about Peace, and I can’t wait to show what they made.
Lots of students were interested in the peace dove and what it means to them.
It was a great day of love, peace, connectedness, and new friendships. When I return to Alaska, we will connect over skype with classes that meet at 9:15 (Schewe’s, Johnson’s, and Helms’s). Morrocan students are excited to “meet” Alaskan students.
Some students asked what the outside of the school looked like. The schools are all enclosed in concrete around them so that cars don’t just drive through, and to keep kids safe.
This is the beautiful outside of their school! The murals are so pretty.
Here is what the outside of a preschool (ages 3-6) look like.
Regular school starts at 1st grade and is called “primary” school (grades 1-6). This is the outside of one, and we will visit one on Friday for more exploration.
I have become really interested in the variety of teacher’s mailboxes at the different schools. See this one!
It’s amazing how inviting, caring, respectful, and happy the Morrocan students have been!
I like the buildings
A wedding preparation there takes a long time compared to here
Aproximately how much people are in each school or class?
The classes are fairly big, from 30-40 students in each. At the private school, the classes were smaller, but so were the classrooms.
Do you think it’s good to life there or no
Absolutely! The people who live here love it hear. They have so much pride in the culture, food, people, beauty, and life. It is absolutely amazing and I encourage everyone to come someday
Do you understand their language
I do understand some. There are several languages spoken here and I am learning a bit. It is much easier to learn when you in a place and can hear it often. French is sometimes easier to understand and read as the language is similar to ours in many ways. Arabic is a beautiful sounding language though too
Are that watermelon 🍉
I don’t think so actually. I have not seen one yet, but maybe in the summer. I will see if I can find out though
Do the maroco people play any sports???😀😀😀
They play lots of sports, from basketball to soccer, handball to volleyball, and even surfing
Where is your favorite place in Morocco that you went to?
I love this question, thanks for asking. I would have to say the high school we spent most of our time at outside of Agadir, as the students were so welcoming and after school, the students are often outside playing. The school courtyard is so cute and the students were so inviting. It felt like home and we felt loved and appreciated. Many students wanted us to stay!
Is there any thing fun to do
Oh, absolutely! We didn’t even get a chance to try it all. There are the souks to go exploring, the beach to play and surf at, sports, I found a zoo today and might go tomorrow. Exploring the cities and the Mosques are also quite magical.

Wow, thank you so much for your comment! I am glad everyone is enjoying. I can’t wait to show you even more pictures! Students on Friday did a Hands for Peace banner too! Ah, I miss you all too, you are very sweet. I am excited that I get to help you all on your journey to become Global Citizens!
Is there anything fun to do like get air or shockwave or extreme fun center
Actually I don’t think so. They like to spend a lot of time outside since it is so nice out often. We have those places because we spend so much time inside with the harsher climate we live in. They have the beach and ocean to play in, what more could anyone ask for!
Do they have pets there? What are the holidays? Is Morocco a poor country or rich? What are the jobs
