A Trip Around the World - Geography

12:30pm-2:00pm Tuesdays     Ages 5-7

Join me, littlest explorers, on an adventure... an adventure around the world!  We’ll start our year at our front door and explore through games, songs and stories, America the Beautiful and all her treasures, from sea to shining sea.  We’ll then leave our shores, passports in hand, and begin our trip around the world!  We’ll explore cultures, foods, music, traditions, art, clothing, customs, landmarks, holidays, animals and more.  We’ll "visit" continents and countries, oceans and land forms and more! Every class will intertwine learning with games and play, keeping students engaged at all times. We will also take an exciting field trip during our year of travel together, to explore the art and the history of a few of the places we will have visited along our journey together.
