Cultural Programs: Diverse Cultures around the World
The World in Our Backyard is extremely proud of our 45 minute programs developed for students to enhance their study of families of diverse cultures around the world. Students are introduced to “real life” experiences, are dressed in native costumes and are exposed to customs and religious practices from other parts of the world. They learn that New Year’s Day has a very different meaning in China, Christmas in Australia is celebrated in their summer, and Saint Nicolas visits the children on December 5 in the Netherlands.
Our in-house field trips were developed to support the NC Course of Study competency goals and objectives and to engage students in a creative and energetic way through the use of photographs, artifacts, cultural costumes and traditional music.
The following programs are offered:
Africa, Australia, China, India, Italy, Mexico, Native Americans, Peru and the Netherlands.
The cost is $5 a student with a minimum charge of $250.
