We will take a trip around the globe.  Each week the students will pick a place to "travel" to.  In class, they will share their finds through short weekly individual presentations of their choosing.  We will discuss the different countries, cultures, foods, wildlife, economics, social issues, etc.  The kids will be assigned "souvenirs" (themes) to return to class to share such as drawing a flag of the country, bringing a prop, article of clothing, a game popular, etc. as an example of something that might be found in their travels.  We will mark the places we've "traveled" to on a map.  We will incorporate relevant games as well.
