Today we are happy to be back at Barnstable Intermediate School for our fourth visit and second in two weeks at the school!

EarthView in the Gym on 5/29/15

At last week's visit, the student's had a wonderful time going inside of the globe and learning about all different types of geographic interests all over the world. Ms. Rosalie aka The Globe Lady and Dr. Domingo assisted in the teaching of micro-entrepreneurship which the 6th graders here are learning about in the classroom. 

EarthView wrangler Eva was even learning things that she had never known about before such as the Grameen foundation and the Grameen bank. Both of these organizations help the poorest of the poor in reaching their full potential in starting their own small businesses in order to support themselves and their families. 

A fun fact of the day is that today's visit coincides with National Doughnut Day! While they may not be the healthiest of snacks, they sure are delicious! National Doughnut Day falls on the first Friday in June and was started in 1938 by the Salvation Army to honor the men and women who served doughnuts to the soldiers in World War I. Today many places that serve doughnuts are giving them out for free (with the purchase of a beverage) so if you get the chance too, enjoy yourself with a delicious treat! 

We hope that the 6th graders at Barnstable Intermediate have enjoyed their trip inside of EarthView!
