International Day At Trevose Day School
January has presented a world of discovery for the students of Trevose Day School. Our students spent an exciting month preparing an educational, multicultural celebration for International Day! Our special event will be held on Friday, January 30th, with a wide range of activities for everyone to enjoy.
Diving deep into the fascinating arts, geography, food, language and customs of other cultures, our academic globetrotters used their studies to create an interactive world-wide experience that spans the seven continents. Each class has transformed their room to represent their continent of focus.
Mrs. Hacker’s preschoolers have spent their time studying Antartica. They turned their room into an igloo — complete with all the ocean animals that can be found in the cold and icy climate.
The kindergarteners in Mrs. Turner’s class took their inspiration from France and transformed their space into an exquisite French cafe. Students who visit this delicious classroom will have the opportunity to sample wonderful French cuisine such as fondue, brie and baguettes.
Mrs. Hines’ Montessori class stayed close to home and studied North America. Their work spanned the United States of America, from the Redwood Forests to the Gulf Stream waters. They learned about important sites in American history including the Liberty Bell, The Statue of Liberty and Mount Rushmore.
Mrs. McNally and her Montessori class journeyed far and wide while sightseeing across Asia. The Eastern scholars have learned how to count to ten in Japanese, constructed Chinese lanterns, created Russian nesting dolls, and plan to cook a delicious Indian dessert called Carrot Halwa to share with hungry travelers.
Our first graders answered the call of the wild and explored the South American rainforest. Tapping their vast artistic skills, they made an immersive classroom jungle complete with exotic animals and plants. They also made a flag of Brazil, studied the monetary system of South America and are learning to dance Samba.
The second and third grade students in Mrs. Buckley’s room have gone Down Under, making beautiful dot art in the tradition of the Aborigines in Australia. They also enjoyed an education in adorable indigenous animals including kangaroos, sugar gliders and emus.
Our tour around the world ends with Mrs. Worrall’s fourth and fifth grade group. While learning about the geography, wildlife, language and cultures of Africa, the students mastered traditional greetings and customs from Kenya. Stop by to see their travel posters all about Kenya too!
