Reading: The long (and sometimes dangerous) walk to school – How Children Around The World Get To School #Globaled #Reading #Education

The long (and sometimes dangerous) walk to school 3/4J I stumbled upon this article and I was inspired to share it with you. We take walking to school for granted.

    1. The image that interests me is the one when there climing across the broken bridge, because if they fall down it would be very dangerous and they will drown.

    2. Yes and no. They are dangerous but they have no other choice.

    3. I would choose the one where the kids are wearing the blue school uniform, because it looks pretty safe to me but the only thing is they are walking to school by themselves with no grown up.
