Awesome Author Visit with J & P Voelkel
Jon and Pamela Voelkel make a return visit to Patrick Taylor
One of our sixth graders explains that he has Mayan ancestors. He was outfitted with a microphone so that he could describe his trip to Copan in his father's native Honduras. He regaled the audience with stories of climbing the ruins.
The Voelkels have traveled to Mayan ruins in Mexico, Belize and Guatemala, but had not traveled to Honduras.
Jon showed us video of some of the interesting things that he got to eat in Mexico: scorpion, termites, worms, and monkey. Sounded delicous, NOT. Then they offered the teachers a chance to taste one of these tasty morsels: fried worms. Believe it a not we all had a thumbs up.
