Overview

Everywhere across the United States, children from other countries are joining American classrooms. How can their classmates prepare? Learning about the culture, geography, and history of the new student's native country can help smooth the transition. Greeting the student with a few words in his or her language, making a traditional craft, and whipping up a well-known dish are all sure to help the child feel welcome. In this vibrant and colorful series, students and teachers can find out how to Meet a New Student-and maybe make a new friend.

Nicaragua is a land of baseball and beautiful beaches, soaring mountain ranges, and smoking volcanoes. The rich history of this small Central American country contributes to a blending of different cultures, including those of the Spanish settlers, native Indians, and others. Its vibrant history also includes political strife from civil wars, protests, and military intervention by the United States. Join Danny and his fourth-grade classmates as they explore the history, culture, geography, and climate of the country to prepare for the arrival of Ram?n, a new student from Nicaragua. Best of all, find out how to make gallopinto, then paint a clay piggy bank you can make yourself. Hola, Ram?n!
