4th Grade Celebrates Globalization Week

During the week of January 28th-February 1st, Benton Heights held a Globalization week for students to learn, experience, and grow in their understanding of the countries around the world.

Fourth grade concentrated on the countries of North America. Throughout the week, they were exposed to the history and culture of each country through the use of literature, power points, video clips, and classroom projects. On the fourth grade hall, you can see many examples of the experiences children were given during the week.   

In Mrs. Anderson's class, students were able to meet a guest speaker, Juan Pablo Soto, who is a native of Guatemala. Students enjoyed hearing him describe the history and culture of Guatemala and seeing pictures of the land and traditions of this Central American country. Overall, the week was a success and the students enjoyed this globalization learning experience.
