Going global: One afternoon at a time.
The International Club at New Salem has had a great time so far this year. This after school club focuses on one country each week. They learned about the diverse Native American cultures of the United States by looking at pictures of tribes in the Plains, the Pacific Northwest and in North Carolina. Next, they learned about native Hawaiian culture. After that, they "traveled" to Mexico and learned about our neighbors to the south. Recently, they studied China, learned about the Chinese New Year and practiced writing some Chinese characters. Future plans include learning about Japan, Greece, Russia and more! Students in the club are excited to learn about the amazing cultures in our world!
