2. Pictures Speak a Thousand Words: A Cultural Exchange with Afghanistan

Challenge some creative students to document life at your Rhode Island high school. Include photographs of classrooms, the grounds, students in action, clubs, sports teams, performances – anything you’d like to share. Arrange the pictures to tell a story without using any words. Create a scrapbook, collage, posters. . .

Reading Across RI will send the photo documentaries to Kohak Primary School in Kandahar. Drawings and photos from the Afghan students will be shared with all schools that participate!
