Third Grade Racers in Europe

Third graders are continuing their amazing race on the continent of Europe. After identifying the capital and Prime Minister of England students travelled across the Channel to either France or Poland to complete a team challenge. Students watched videos on their country from the National Geographic Kids website, where you can find videos and presentations on a huge number of countries:
Next they selected to either construct the Eiffel Tower out of Legos or do a Polish paper cutting technique called Wycinanki.

We are approaching the end of our world race, and I am proud of the excellent teamwork and perseverance that I see each week. Students are solving problems and working together!
