This story was a group project from our students in Taiwan, who were challenged to create a fictitious story based on the commonalities of their own experiences from our "Stepping out of your comfort zone" activity.

The purpose of this exchange was to provide an opportunity for elementary students from Taiwan to express themselves while sharing their culture and personal interests with students in America.
During the 2010- 2011 school year students in New York participated in an article exchange with students in Taiwan. Their goal was to create a school newspaper that would be viewable online through their school’s internal network.
