Around the World With Special Area Teachers
Learning about our world is so much more fun using art, music, games, computers, and books! Here are some of the activities going on for Globalization this year. In the media center, students have enjoyed fairy tales from many cultures. We have located all kinds of places on our giant world map, which also displays ways to say hello in many languages, as well as postcards from various places. Research topics have ranged from countries to animal habitats.
In art classes, students have learned about world landmarks including Stonehenge, St. Basil’s Cathedral, the Great Mosque of Samara, and the Great Wall of China. They also created Guatemalan plates. During PE class, students learned about sports, games and music from a variety of countries, including Iceland, Austria, Norway, Sweden, and Finland. Everyone loves to move!
