Upon arrival, the elementary learners were greeted by Junior student “tour guides” and, then, they began their “tour” of South America.
There were five “stops” on their itinerary including…
- an “I Spy” coloring activity of the Amazon Rain Forest animals,
- a Galapagos Island lesson on the famous finches and an even a guest appearance from “Cheeseburger” our BPS Science Center tortoise,
- an introduction to the northern region of South America, including its animals and their habitats,
- a scavenger hunt of various sites located in the southern region of South America along with a mountain building activity of the Andes,
- and a dance lesson of both the Salsa and Merengue latin dances
Students from Francis Wyman, Pine Glen, Memorial, and Fox Hill were energetic and excited. For that reason, our BHS Spanish students were thrilled to interact and teach the young learners about the curricular theme that many are so passionate about at this stage of their Spanish learning career.
The BHS World Language Department looks forward to more interactive teaching experiences in the future regarding language and cultural learning opportunities with the students in the BPS system.
