During the month of January the school-wide theme was “Cultures,” during which each age level studied a different country. We celebrated this unit by sharing the information they had attained during a World’s Fair.
On January 29th the children boarded the Heartworks Airways to fly around the world (around the school) visiting other countries. Represented at the Fair were Australia (Marisse’s class), China (Sarah’s class), Japan (Maria’s class), Mexico (Katherine’s class) and Kenya (Ali, Allison and Caila’s classes).
At each stop the children had their passports stamped marking their visit. The flights rotated so each class had an opportunity to return to their home country (their own classroom) to teach the other classes some fun facts about their country. It was quite impressive to hear the presentations from the children- they retained so much information about their countries!
