We have some of those plants here too and they are around a salt lake we have. Interesting.
Does everyone know my son has to do school at home through School of the Air? Most of the time he is with me doing the work that is sent out and nearly everyday, for half and hour, he gets on the computer and has a lesson with his teacher who is about 250kms away. All the kids can see the teacher and hear all the other kids. This today was a bit different .. through the wonders of technology the kids were linked up with another classroom hundreds of ks away where we could see them but they could only see Conor's teacher but it was amazing how it all worked.
Anyway! Here is the computer and the classroom
(and why yes! It could do with a tidy up .. holidays start next week so will do it then lol)
