Wonders of the World – A Global Book Class
Pack your bags and get ready to set off on a trip around the globe… PASSPORTS INCLUDED!
During this 12 week class, we will be visiting locations that are considered Wonders of the World, and we will be doing this using the book series “Where Is” (a branch of the “Who Was” series). This series of books brings a lot of powerful information on people, places, and events to children in a straightforward way. These books appeal to both boys and girls and are designed for seasoned readers and reluctant readers alike!
Before our adventure starts, I will give each learner a passport to make and each week I will send a printable for learners to “stamp” their passports.
Each week our book club will meet to discuss the book we read during the previous week (we will not read books in class). Children will also be asked to bring a book based project. This project is meant to spark some creativity, help with those that really benefit from hands on learning, and help bring history to life. Projects can be drawings, paintings, Lego builds, dioramas, a poem, or anything your child would like to share to express their vision of what they learned from each book. Projects will be shared during the class meeting time, which will encourage public speaking, allowing learners to talk to each other and make friends!
Our first class will be an introductory class, where we will set the structure of future club meetings and learn more about what makes a Wonder of the World. Future classes will be structured with a short introductory period, discussion time, sharing of projects, and if time allows, in class visual aids. Each week I will also make a printable available to help learners remember the key points of each book.
After class is over… each learner will earn a certificate of completion!
This course is a 12-lesson course.
This class will meet Mondays from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM CST beginning on Monday, January 3rd and will be ending Monday, March 21st.
