Climb Every Mountain

Mt. Everest, known to Nepalis as Sagarmatha, meaning, roughly, “Goddess of the Sky,” and to Tibetans as Chomolungma, “Goddess Mother of the Land,” is the tallest mountain in the world. Every year hundreds of mountaineers from around the world attempt to reach the 29,029 foot high summit, enlisting Nepali Sherpa people to help them climb. In our online class we’re going to teach kids how to climb Everest using our imaginations. That means we can climb without Sherpas and yaks…or, with a hundred Sherpas and a million yaks.
