I'm so excited to announce a new program for Anderson students in grades 3-5. It is called the Global Children's Challenge. The Global Children's Challenge™ engages children at a classroom level to record their activity level, keep healthy and take part in a virtual walk around the world learning about health, nutrition, exercise and the places they visit over the 50 days of the event. The 2012 challenge begins Wednesday 19th September and finishes Wednesday 7th November.
The 'virtual' journey around the world has a factual discovery focus, allowing kids to learn about other countries, towns, cities, and the day-to-day lives of similar aged children from different cultures all around the world. As a learning experience, the course locations include information and facts on geography, history, social science, human society, cultural difference, the environment as well as lots of the 'popular culture' that upper primary/elementary students love.
