We started at 8:30am in the morning.  The first class we talked to was Kai's Class from Nanakuli Elementary school they showed us a lot about them selves and that they were so excited to meet us. In fact there were 2 classes video chatting with us from the same school. They told us that all there learning is only taught in Hawaiian which I found very fascinating.

We also spoke to 1 class from Kea'au Elementary school which were 5th graders. They didn't just have Hawaiian student at there school but also Filipino, Portugese, Japanese, Puerto, Rican, Chinese, Bemba, Irish, Zambia, American, Italian and Mexican. They also showed us a little story about a volcano they call Pele which is the also the fire goddess that erupted.

I was very interested in Kea'au tsunami museum. They said that there was a tsunami came and washed out the entire town. They say that they can still find bits of china glass on their beaches.
