Passports were issued today in Kindergarten in preparation for our trip around the world. Each passport contained the requisite photo and identification. We boarded our plane and buckled up as we headed off for a variety of destinations. Here's what our itinerary looked like:
At each stop we learned about the geography, animals, and people of those regions. Of course, we got our passports stamped each time before reentering the plane.
We learned all kinds of things today such as:
What is different about the colors of animals who live in the rainforests?
What kind of clothes do kids in desert regions wear and why?
Shofars are made from the horns of which animals that live in the mountains?
What did early explorers think about the earth? (That it was flat and they might sail right of its edge!)
Later in the day, we designed our own 3-D topographical map to show the mountains, deserts, and grassland that we visited. Tomorrow, we'll add the oceans. Then, we snipped photos from National Geographics to add to our poster collection. Finally, at the end of the day Zalmi asked, "Do you think our class could REALLY take a trip around the world and even go to Australia?"
