Throughout the year, our class will be following a family as they travel across the world over the span of 12 months. Aside from reading and discussing the family’s adventures, we will be working through different assignments and even communicating (hopefully) with them as we learn about different countries and cultures from around the world. In our classroom, we have dedicated a bulletin board to The Global Field Trip where we will be updating the family’s travels. We will be using this board as as a starting point for our own in-class adventures and discoveries.
Here is a link to the Global Field Trip Blog site.
Assignment 1: (The 5 Ws) Answering the 5 Ws and getting to know the World.
Assignment 2: (Researching a Country) Use the link to “Culture Grams” to help you in your research.
Assignment 3: (Paragraph Writing) We read about how our traveling friends only took what they could carry and we actually got to explore a packed a carry-on bag. After our clothes and toiletry supplies, there isn’t much room left!
