A Nile Visitor

Mr. Radix-Carter, a K1 teacher at our school, visited our classroom to talk about his trips to Uganda. He lived there for 5 months, volunteered in an orphanage, and spent time along the Nile. He showed us pictures of some of the animals he saw along the Nile. He told us about all the farmers and fishermen he saw working along the Nile.
