Countries of the World

This week SGB and the other Grade 6 classes are beginning a new Project called “Countries of the World”.  Each student has a country to research and investigate.  Each student will create a poster and then team up with students from other classes to share their knowledge and prepare to present their information to the School Community on the Expo Day to be held on the 17th of September.  Kids will have the opportunity to present Dances, wear National Costumes and even provide some samples of traditional foods from their country!

National Geographic Kids is a very good site to visit to get some helpful information.
