Geography Lessons

After realizing the children’s knowledge of the world outside of El Cocal was very minimal, volunteers Hannah and Caitlin thought it would be a good idea to teach the kids about the continents.

The girls did a great job, showing the kids pictures, explaining the different cultures, food, landscapes and animals of all the continents. It was excellent for the kids to speak to people who are actually from these far off places as well, giving them direct access to learning about other cultures.
The kids, the volunteers, and the teachers all loved the class and the other teachers were even begging them to do it with their grades as well. 
Great job girls!!!
