Global Classroom Club
The Global Classroom Club explores the culture, language, foods, countries and places (historic and modern) we will visit on the Global Classroom Tour in June. Each month we follow one-two days of the tour experiencing pictures, books, videos, songs, foods of that area of the country. In December, we will be preparing to depart Italy and move on to Greece by having a cultural experience of Italy for the holidays as we learn about the story of La Befana. In January, we will be traveling to Greece and experiencing Patras • Olympia • Argolida and discussing the first Olympics both in ancient and modern times.
The Global Classroom Tours are international trips we take each June to various countries and landmarks. This is where IB comes alive beyond the four walls of the classroom and out into the world. The opportunities provided by these experiences advance students' knowledge as well as personal growth. Some places we have been in the last 8 years include: China, Morocco, Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Greece, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England, Czech Republic, and Hungary. This coming June we will be exploring the tour, "From Rome to Athens" and experience the ancient cultures and historic landmarks including the location of the first ancient Olympics as well as the first modern day Olympics!
