Cultural studies give the child an opportunity to learn about the world around him, the continents,
the people and animals that live in the world. Children will experience and explore a variety of
cultures including their people, customs, food and music. Physical Geography will teach the child
the names of the continents, countries and both land and water forms. This is accomplished through
group circle time activities and through the use of wooden puzzle maps, globes and land/water forms
that the child is able to manipulate independently. In History, the child will learn how the world
came about. Concrete materials will allow him to explore the different time periods of history.
It is through these studies that a child will develop an understanding and appreciation of and a
respect for the diversity of the world and his place in it.
