Monday morning, Fred Vocasek, senior lab agronomist, spoke to students in social studies classes in Bucklin (6th, 7th, and 8th grades) about his visit to the Ukraine. Rob Scott is their teacher. The 6th grade class has World History as a topic and had been studying the history of Eastern Europe, including the Ukraine.
The temperature in Bucklin, Kansas. was 36°F and the temperature in Kiyv, Ukraine, was 50°. This is a reversal from “normal”, because Kiyv, Ukraine, and Winnipeg, Manitoba, are on the same northern latitude.
