In this class, we will be taking a virtual tour of the world, “visiting” 8 different countries*. I want kids to learn about how people and places in other countries are alike and how they are special. We will use some map skills to locate places and we will sharpen our observation skills as we look at photos and objects from the different countries we visit. We will talk about the different countries to consider how people live, what they like to do, what they like to eat, things that they value, and the places that are important in their country.
