Off-Week Optional Classes: GEOGRAPHY FAIR
Geography Fair – $5/per country - Work on it a home, and then present it at a TBD date!
Geography Fair Coordinator - Lora Saul
The cost for the geography fair will be strictly for the cost of the passports/stamps.
Each family will choose a country to showcase. Each family will submit a few families that they would like to feature. The family will do the research and make their display and then each family will set up a table at the geography fair to showcase. Please indicate on the registration form in the section of two or three countries that your family would enjoy researching. I will email you the country that your family will be researching. Your children can do their own country if they would like, just have them pick two countries per child. We don’t want 25 kids doing China.
For the geography fair, each family will be given ½ or a whole table to display their information. The children will be given a passport to go around in the gym and tour the country displays.
You are also able to sign up and not attend the off-weeks to participate in the geography fair. I will tell you the topic that we will be working on that week and you can work on them at home. I highly suggest that even if you choose to attend on the off-weeks that you take a couple hours on the other weeks to work on your display.
