Amazing World of Structures

We are learning about structures in our new Science Unit. It is amazing to see how different they can be. We know you have to build strong and stable structures so they will last for years. Did you know that structures are usually built for a certain purpose? They can be made out of many different materials. After watching the video on some very cool structures Google amazing structures from around the world. Find one that you really like and tell me more about it in the comment bubble beside this post. I am excited to see how many different structures we can learn about! 🙂

Holidays Around the World

There are many amazing traditions and festivals celebrated around the world. It is fascinating to see how similar the practices are among people often thought to be very “different” from each other. This shows that all of us on Earth are part of something bigger than ourselves, our families, our countries, and our religions and multicultural groups. US refers to everyone on Earth. Let’s find out how we celebrate around the world.
After watching the videos search on Google HOLIDAY TRADITIONS AROUND THE WORLD FOR KIDS. After reading about the many traditions tell me about your favorite one in the comment bubble bedside this post. I am very excited to learn along with you! 🙂
