Teachers all over the world! This is the greatest …

Teachers all over the world! This is the greatest idea you’ll ever hear. It uses 1 simple map of the world, research tools and children who want to learn.

It’s called around the world!

Here’s how it works;

First put a huge map of the world on the wall,
Give each child a different coloured pin to place on the map and ask them to choose a country they’ve never heard of, to start their journey.

Once they have chosen hand each of them a booklet and ask them to design the front cover with a picture and the words “My journey around the world.” The children start their journey by researching the country where their pin sits.
They can research topics such as.
Population
Capital city
Religion
Industry
Geography
Political history
Famous people
Inventions
Food
Daily life
War
Celebrations
Traditions
Animals

The idea is that each month the child attaches some string to their pin and joins it to another pin and the research continues.

Each child visits 12 countries in one year and it requires no intervention from the teacher. At some point chicken may meet in a country a produce a joint project
Share this idea far and wide!!! ❤️
