Spanish Preschoolers Visit the Panama Canal!

Panama Canal

Aboard a beautiful sea cruise, Spanish preschoolers in Minnetonka crossed the Panama Canal in Maestra Mariana's native country of Panama!

The group docked along the river Chagres to enjoy the beautiful flora and fauna of the Panamanian rainforest. We saw howling monkeys and colorful, yet very poisonous frogs. We reviewed many favorite vocabulary games including bingo, four corners and Where’s Max?
