The children in Group 3 had an amazing start to their trip around the world! Receiving their first passport stamp in North America, included gaining fun new facts about some of the 23 countries in the continent. Students learned about many patriotic symbols and created a hand-stamped Statue of Liberty. Group 3 also investigated rocks and minerals. They sorted their collections by size, shape, color, and texture. This hands-on in class activity had them prepared to explore Sterling Mineral Mine. Students enjoyed the tour of the mine and collecting ore. It was wonderful to see what they have studied come to life. Using the globe and reading text during Interdisciplinary Themed Instruction also made Group 3’s North America visit so excited. We can’t wait to travel again next week!
