Fourth graders experience journey Out of Eden
The fourth-graders spent a morning visiting with journalist and explorer Paul Salopek, as he described his Out of Eden Walk, from a stop in Northern India.
Mr. Salopek, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist is working with National Geographic on a 21,000-mile odyssey to trace the pathways of the first humans who migrated out of Africa and around the world. His project is a decade-long experiment in slow journalism, and is expected to last a decade.
The fourth-graders were captivated by the images and stories from the Skype session. For more about the visit, check out the blog post that Mr. Handmaker wrote this week.
