Eyrarbakki

Eyrarbakki is the oldest school in the country, the primary school was established in 1852.

As we drove into the town and approached the school, we felt like celebrities! The school was out front waiting to greet us! Immediately, they made us feel very welcome.


We gathered in the cafeteria and formed a circle with all the students. We introduced the "Look Down, Look Up" game to help the students quickly pair up and get to know each other. We were quite impressed by their knowledge of English. At this point, we felt bad we didn't know many Icelandic words or phrases.


Some of the students surveyed each other to find out more about "Who We Are." This project was an extension of one completed in two schools in Belize. We will combine the data to find out how different and similar we are between the 3 countries. Here are the results of the students from Eyrarbakki.
