Some things I am wondering about and would like to ask the kids from Auburn is do you think you would enjoy living in Michigan?
I would like to live in Michigan because it would be a different lifestyle.
I think that it would be cool to live in Michigan, because we barely get any snow at all here and it would be different because most of us in Auburn have lived here our whole lifes
I think I would love living in Michigan. I mean in Auburn we don't have much snow so I would be throwing snowballs everywhere.
What surprised me the most about the teleconference was that all the girls from Auburn wear Converse and Uggs!
we don't wear uggs yet because its not cold enough
thats not true
How cold does it get there?
99% of the girls in our school wear those and drink Starbucks every day
That's a little bit of a stereotype!
That's not quite true fam
Not all girls here wear Uggs. A lot of us wear other boots or Converse. And, although Starbucks is very popular, not all girls here drink Starbucks everyday. It is a very popular stereotype, but it's not entirely true.
The thing that surprised me the most about the teleconference was that the Auburn kids were a lot like us. They wore the same clothes, played the same sports, and we both knew the same dances.
The thing that surprised me the most about the video chat is how much more respectful and a little bit more behaved, the Auburn kids were, during the video chat.
you don't play hockey...
yea thats not a big sport down in the south
hockey is not a big sport down here in he south
What surprised me the most in the teleconference was that all of the girls in Auburn own Ugg's. I find this cool because it doesn't get quite as cold as it does here in Michigan.
It gets cold enough where than we can wear uggs but now its not cold enough
I did not expect to hear that you guys tailgate for multiple days.
we take tailgating pretty seriously here in auburn we stay out for 10-12 hours at a time.
What happens if it's a noon game? You get up at midnight?
If the game is around noon the you will get there earlier and you keep tailgating after the game and yeah.
Well for us we get up at 5:30 in the morning for the noon games, we go to our spot and set up our tents and everything and we stay out there till about 6:30 to 7:00 at night
The thing that surprised me most was that it doesn't get colder than 40 degrees. But the girls their still where UGGs even though it doesn't get cold really there.
To us it gets really cold in the south because we are not used to living up in the north where it is EVEN COLDER! So we think that it is cold enough to wear UGGS.
it does get cold enough to wear them
It gets colder than 40 degrees especially around December and January. Its not cold enough yet, but girls are going to start wearing them in a few weeks probably.
What surprised me the most is that they do not play hockey.
We do not have any hockey rinks.
Hockey is not particularly a sport that people enjoy down south.
What surprised me the most is that it only gets to 35 degrees.
yea it doesnt get that cold around here. today in the middle of November its 75 degrees
I think that Auburn kids are nice. The weather is warm like here in the fall.
It surprised me how different they talked, and that their Teacher was Mrs. Hogan-Mclean's Daughter!
Something that surprise me is how you guys tailgate for three days at a time. We only tailgate for a day. Also how you guys dress up more than us when tailgating.
Everyone here usually will get together with our family's and friends and we set up tents and will walk around and cook out before the games then hang out after and during the games.
for girls when we tailgate we usually wear dresses and wedges but when it gets colder we wear sweaters and uggs or boots
What surprised me the most was that I couldn't hear much of an accent from the other school kids.
Yeah we don't have much of an accent! I personally love yours!
i was surprised that you guys tailgate. i thought that we only do that wow
What surprised me was the lack of ethnic diversity in the Mattawan class
What surprised me the most about the teleconference was that are school was much larger than there's and we all had a lot in common
i thought guys wore furry coats
Jeans, t-shirt, sweatshirt, and nikes. Thats about my entire wardrobe right there.
The thing that surprised me the most was that you thought all the people in south like sweat tea. I hate sweat tea.
the survey is what surprised me the most because on the question " do you think that southerners are more racially prejudice than northerners " mainly because we ranked our selves higher than the mattawan students
What surprised me was how there wasn't any other kinds of kids other than white
I'm not white I'm tan...
Actually, there's quite a few other kids other than white, and yes, it may not be the majority, but there are others.
Well me and like 3 other kids out of 150 are black it is kinda sad, our schools isn't very diverse
why do yall call it soda pop instead of coke.
I used to live in Missouri, which is kind of in that area, and there it kinda goes either way. I call it coke, actually. My dad does, my mom does, everyone in my family does. I don't see what all the fuss is about.
I call it soda and not soda pop. And I/we don't call it coke because Coke is a specific brand of drink. Like Coca-Cola.
We do call it coke if that's what we ordered, but we usually call it pop. Nobody really calls it soda.
Because Coke is a name brand product. Soda is just an overall word to use to talk about any type of soda.
Do yall guys go duck hunting down there It seems like it would be good since it is cold and it snows #Countrybo
My dad will occasionally take me fishing, which is good up here since the water comes naturally to Michigan. I live next to a lake. My dad usually does his hunting in Missouri though. And he doesn't go duck hunting.
What surprised me the most is how warm it is down there.
What surprised me the most is that the Auburn kids thought 17 degrees is cold. Last year in Michigan, it got to be -20!!!!!
how neat is that
What surprised me the most ?
Something that surprised me was that the Auburn kids are very similar to us. We share the same fads, and wear most of the same clothes.
that is very true
Why do all y'all think that we don't ever tailgate?
What was the lowest tempature yall have ever had? Down here it was like 17 degrees.
The coldest on record was like...-25 degrees. Maybe lower, I'm not sure.
How often does it snow and have you have a snow storm or blizzard ?
I remember about 2 years ago when i was in 6th grade it was -26 degrees.
What surprised me the most was that my family kinda talks the way you guys do. My mom and dad are from Missouri, somewhat southern, so I guess it's in my bloodline.
thats pretty neat
I was surprised that, in Auburn, 17 degrees was cold.
I die in that weather
I was surprised that a lot of people in the south thought we were all liberal democrats. I mean, where do you even get that from?
Your accents surprised me especially when you say "y'all"
thats what we grew up saying and it is just what we say instead of you guys. we do have an accent but normally everyone here does.
What surprised me most was how many differences, yet things in common both schools have. It amazes me what two classes can do over a teleconference, isn't it? Anyways, enough about MMS, what surprised you people in Auburn the most?
Do you guys like Lebron's and Kd's?
ITS because we got that country voice
What is your favorite sports teams.
Have you ever played videogames?
When we found out more bout each other and got along and compared each other about the survey
What surprised me the most was how the two schools were almost exactly the same in how we act and say. Of course, there were a few differences, but we were very similar.
I was surprised that people from Auburn hunt pretty much the exact same type of game that we do in north.
How funny you guys were, also the weather difference.
I was suprised how much we had in common, we weren't that different when it came to dances, social media and other things.
do yo now how to do dlow bet you can't do it like me challenge
I was surprised that we put ourselves as more racially prejudice.
I was most surprised that you guys could wear leggings....
I was surprised that you guys couldn't...
What surprised me the most was the fact that you were punished for not saying, "Ma'm and Sir" I mean we do say "Sir", but it's more of a slap on the wrist, not a punishment.
I was surprised that they thought we didn't value family.
I was really surprised that you can't, almost every girl wears them here at Mattawan.
Before I actually saw and talked to the Auburn kids, some of us had this stereotype of southerners being pushy or rude. But now, I realize that isn't true and I would really enjoy getting to know some of them!
What surprised me most was that we had so many things in common.
What surprised me the most was that after they had seen our video that it charged there minds on how much we value family.
The whole we don't hunt thing
I was surprised that not a lot of people like country music over there
I was really surprised that not as people listen to country music.
I was surprised that Southners say coke or soda instead of pop
What surprised me the most was how alike people from the North and the South actually are.
what surprised me is that they dress just like us and theres a farm next to their school.
It surprised me that there are cows outside your classroom
What surprised me is that yall are a lot alike us
I was surprised by how much we were alike and we all do most of the same things
What surprised me the most was that the kids from Michigan are just like us.
It surprised me that many of the stereotypes we had for each other were not true at all. most of them were the oppisite
