WABAN Week 1: Take to the Sea! / ¡Vamos al Mar!
Children will be exposed to native foods, music, animals and beautiful seaside sites of the Spanish-speaking world. We’ll travel to the Caribbean, the Galapagos and Patagonia to contrast the inhabitants of these varied climates. As pirates we’ll explore the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and learn about Lonesome George, Sally Lightfoot Crabs, penguins, dolphins, orcas, marine Iguanas, and seals in their habitats. Students will learn to locate some of these animals’ countries on the globe. Children will make their own marine masterpieces, with recycled materials (as much as possible) to help children learn to preserve nature. Children will return home singing songs written to honor the marine environments and animals of the Americas.
