Connect The World
A Multicultural Virtual Reality Trip  Around the World with the Kindergarten and the Fourth Grades
Last year every month for 8 months, three rotating fourth grades joined our four Kindergarten classes for an hour to celebrate as well as study eight countries and their cultures  
through six alternating centers. Using the classroom calendar to enhance the children’s understanding of time, order and sequence, a schedule was created that allowed us to focus on our national holidays, and holidays around the world.  Each month six distinct aspects of a particular country were studied.  Click on the flags below to view the virtual centers that the children rotated through.  We enjoyed learning about other cultures and hope that you will as well.  Here are some Links to various Multicultural websites that we use to enhance this program.
