Going to School Around the World
Have you ever wondered how kids from other countries spend their time in school? In this lively addition to the Meet Our New Student series, follow a day at school for eight students from around the world. Compare the school day in Costa Rica, Turkey, Finland, Kenya, Thailand, Russia, Senegal, and rural Alaska in the United States.
Based on interviews with people who live in the countries profiled, these fictionalized stories include true details about students in these countries, such as the subjects they study, the games they play at recess, the clothes they wear to school, the foods they eat, and what can happen when they misbehave. Follow the easy instructions for a traditional craft you can make for each country.
