A Cultural Celebration

A Cultural Celebration Pic

With passports in hand, students at Tackan Elementary School held a multicultural day, traveling around the world in a celebration of diversity on June 19.

Celebrating dance, music, crafts and activities from all around the world, the students traveled around the school and into a new country to immerse in its culture. After learning a bit about life in each of the places, students participated in a cultural activity. In Mexico, students made and played their own maracas. In India, they crafted elephant masks. In Russia and Ireland, students learned dances specific to those regions. 

Each time the students moved to a different station, their passport was stamped. “It’s a Small World” played over the public announcement system when it was time to rotate to a new country.
