Part of our third grade enrichment curriculum is focused on geography and developing global awareness and connections. We are excited that a cousin of a student in one of our classes is currently traveling and studying in Europe. While she is there, she will be providing us with mystery location challenges. These challenges will be a chance for us to connect with a member of our extended community, AND learn some awesome geographic skills! Tomorrow we will have our first challenge---finding her home base for our journey together--Cardiff University in Wales! I wonder if students will be able to quickly identify it on a map! I wonder what questions they will have for Tori about her location! Check back often to learn about Tori's adventures and our class connection to a world traveler!
Here is the introduction that we will share in third grade this week as our first challenge!!!
Hi Mrs. Rankin’s Class!
My name is Tori and I am Tess’ cousin!!
I am very excited to be talking with you guys about my adventures around the U.K. and Europe. While I am traveling abroad I will be studying at Cardiff University in Wales and traveling to a few other countries as well. When I am not in Wales I live in New York State but go to Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont! I can’t wait to share my travels with you all! Feel free to ask me any questions that you have and I will do my best to find out the answers!
Talk to you soon,
