This Friday we are completing a Mystery Science activity that involves plastic water bottles. Would you be so kind to send your child with 1 empty plastic water bottle? Just an empty soda, gatorade, or water bottle will be perfect.
Also, we are studying Christmas Around the World in the coming weeks. Let me know if you have any traditions from a specific culture that you would like to come in and share about. I know we have some students that have unique traditions based on their heritage.
The places we are visiting are: Canada, Mexico, Germany, Spain, England, Italy, and Sweden.
If you are familiar/ have knowledge with a different region's traditions that are not listed above, we would still love to have you. Just let me know what you have in mind!
Also, if you know any specific treats based on the regions above, you could always bring in a treat that is from that specific culture.
Thank you so much! Email me with any questions you may have.
