Our final week of Oceania will introduce us to the islands of New Zealand and Tahiti. We will focus on two world famous artists that were inspired by the Polynesian islands―and their beautiful art will inspire some of our own projects. We will also enjoy doing several STEM projects as we learn about earth science, marine biology, and physics.
Our study of Oceania continues as we explore Polynesia! This week, we will spend a lot of time learning about the U.S. islands of Hawaii (also written Hawai’i). We will explore the geological formation of the islands, their complicated history, and their rich culture.
This week, we will continue our Oceania adventure through the islands of the Pacific Ocean, specifically Micronesia. Our activities will be be filled with important science lessons about earth science, conservation, and botany.
Welcome to the Pacific Ocean and the island nations of Oceania! We will explore the countries and cultures of this vast area better known by their geographic divisions of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. This week will focus on Melanesia―including the islands of Papua New Guinea, Fiji, and the Solomon Islands.
In our final week of our Cuba unit study, we will learn more about modern-day life on the island. Our lessons will include a tasty book review writing assignment, the foundations for critical thinking conversations, and lots of artist studies!
his week we will examine the ocean life that sets Cuba apart from many other marine environments, and we will learn about several famous musicians and artists with Cuban heritage.
This week we will learn more about the history of Cuba, including digging deeper into the Spanish and African influence in Cuban culture.
Our month-long study of Cuba will begin with a geography lesson. Then, we will learn about the ancient people of the island, as well as the unique animals that inhabit it today―including the smallest bird in the world!
Our final week of Nigeria will end with a ton of science! The beautiful and wonderous ecosystem of Nigeria will introduce us to some amazing (and scary) animals. We will take a closer look at one of earth’s most interesting processes—the nitrogen cycle—and we will practice our research and travel planning skills.
If you are an art and science lover, then this is the week for you! Let’s continue our journey through Nigeria as we explore more about the culture and the arts of this beautiful country.
