This may seem like a random topic, but we found out that the first American woman to summit Mt. Everest was in September of 1988. The book has some really great pictures of this amazing mountain, emphasizing that it is the tallest mountain in the world. While passing the voice output device around, we had our students “tell us something about Mt. Everest”. Putting the pictures against a blue background really helped them to stand out. Put on your heavy jackets and enjoy being taken to Mt. Everest!
