Students embrace cultural lessons via Internet chats with Afghans

Linar Etemadi, a fifth-grade teacher at Glenelg Country School, coordinated Internet chat sessions between her students and boys attending Roshan High School, in Afghanistan. Etemadi also started the Kites for Kids program in which students flew kites made in Afghanistan to raise money for several organizations -- such as Champs International, Marshall Legacy Institute and Healthy Afghan Children -- that help children in the war-torn country. Here, Etemadi poses with several of the kites and the Afghanistan flag. (Staff Photo by Sarah Nix)

Some Maryland fourth- and fifth-graders are using the Internet to connect with students in Afghanistan. The Afghan students discuss their country's hardships, including the dangers of land mines, and help refute any inaccurate views held by U.S. students about Afghanistan.
