kids around the world
Teacher: Vicki Thompson
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to grow up on the other side of the world? Would it be very different from growing up here? We are about to embark on a journey around the world to see how children in other areas of the world spend their day. What do they do? What do they eat? What is their school like? What games do they play? What celebrations do they enjoy? Each week we will visit a different country and hear the story of a child that lives there. We will find the country on the map and then our fun begins. We will end class with a stamp in our passports so we can remember our travels. Join us as we travel the world and make new friends.
Exploring the Land of Lincoln
Teacher: Deidre Anderson
Come, learn more about the place we call home! Illinois is full of rich (and surprising) history. This class will present it in a fun and engaging way! Class time will include exciting, hands-on projects as we travel through time from the beginnings of our home state until the present. Everyone will take home their own journal at the end of the semester to revisit our history whenever they want!
