World Traveler


Come explore the world with us! We will be learning about geography, world cultures and earth science. We will study each continent for 3 weeks, learning about the people who live in those parts of the world through reading books, doing presentations, eating new foods, visiting museums, meeting people from around the world, playing games, creating art, and watching fascinating videos!

In the science portion of our class, we will be learning about our own amazing planet. Simple at-home experiments, awesome hands-on activities in class, and outdoor adventures will help us understand the powerful geological forces that shape our world. We are excited to learn together with you this year!
