"Heart Tours Australia and Oceania" is just one in the exciting geography course "Heart Tours." We explore the wonder of these exotic and beautiful lands.
I designed this course to teach children about the amazing and diverse cultures in our world, and that although we are different and unique in our own way, we all share beautiful hearts, smiles and our wonderful world which we call home!
The "Heart Tours" is a series of social studies, geography, and numerous activities, integrated into one course for elementary students, in which the presentation of the continents are studied in an exciting, captivating and very interactive way. It is perfect for classrooms and home schoolers alike.
Children go on a virtual trip around the world to learn about the countries, culture, national dress, food, flags and games of the 6 inhabited continents.
They are issued play "passports," and learn to say a line or two in the local language and get to practice speaking to the "people" they "meet" along the way!
At the end of each continent we do a national dress up, learn a dance, learn a local song, cook something easy and tasty (optional, but always a favorite!), and learn about the local musicians, artists, writers and poets.
We also explore other internet resources such as youtube, www.projectexplorers.org , www.wanderingeducators.com and Google 3D Earth online for more input, videos, multi-media interaction and tons of fun!
This series is action-packed and has been a favorite of elementary students worldwide. They also feel very satisfied and accomplished once they have finished the course, and are issued an impressive diploma which they love to display with pride!
