World Cultures

In World Cultures we'll "travel" from one continent to another learning about different cultures throughout the world.  As we explore, we'll learn about people's 'way of life'.  We'll compare and contrast the lives of others to our own, helping us to broaden our understanding of world cultures.  Throughout our study we'll incorporate exposure to geography, music, sports, writing, art, and much more.  Buckle up!  It's going to be an exciting adventure!
