Outside the Box – d’Amileau Baulk
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi, Oi, Oi! The Renascence School International summer program has come to an end. Students spent their last week of summer school learning about Australia! Students learned where Australia is located on a map and on a globe.Teachers discussed with their students the country’s famous animals, favorite foods, and popular places to visit.
They got their creative juices flowing with an art activity that encompassed many things Australian, including their flag, kangaroos, and koala bears. Afterwards the children marched around the school with their Australian flags, to celebrate their knowledge of Australia. One of the Renascence School International students is a big fan of Australia and she shared with the whole class her experiences from Australia. Her classmates were very excited at the end and are now eager to visit the land Down Under!
