Cultural studies give children the opportunity to learn about the world around them; 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 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. It is through these studies that children will develop an understanding and appreciation of and a respect for the diversity of the world and their place in it.
