Each day we will learn about the culture of a different country such as Africa, Australia, China, Russia, USA, or India. We will begin by using books and video clips to see the part of the world that we are exploring and understand their land, people, dance, and what makes them unique. Additionally we will create a craft that is specific to that region (African drums, ribbons for Chinese dancing, Russian hat, etc.). We will get to use this craft to assist us as we lean and practice movements that are specific to the culture we are exploring and we will have lots of fun performing with each other.
