Geography Expo: Thursday, April 5, 5 pm – 7 pm

Learn about international cultures at the 4th Annual Geography Expo on Thursday, April 5, from 5 -7 pm. This FREE family event is open to all students and their families to sign up as participants or come as visitors.

Children visiting the expo can discover countries worldwide, learn about the global geography, world languages, cultural differences, food and more!   To date and counting, over 25 countries will be represented.

Students and families are asked to sign up for a country in advance (to avoid duplication).  Then  create a country display (on a tri-fold board)  which works as a learning tool for visitors to the expo.

Each display will be as unique as the child and family that created it.  Students can focus on a theme such as sports, food, art, etc… as well as documenting major facts.    A display might offer a sample of food,  have objects of interest, money, art; children might where traditional dress, etc.  The Geography Expo promotes global literacy and is an excellent supplement to the studies of geography, history, and  world cultures.

Visitors will also be given a paper passport where they can collect stamps from each country as they “tour the world”.  Student participants can create their own stamp, sticker, or other marker to represent their country!

To sign up as a participant, or for more information, contact Teresa O’Brient: berkshierra@aol.com, 413-298-0099.
