If the entire world and its people were represented in one theme park, what would the park look like? That is what students in this course learn as they design your own Global Village Theme Park. This is a big project, and park visitors need to have a good time while learning about the world. To do the job right, students must have a solid knowledge of geography.
Students start the project by going on a global fact-finding mission. The mission includes Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North and South America, and the countries around the Pacific rim. Students research the cultural and natural landscapes of the regions they visit. Then they design their own theme parks offering a multicultural understanding of our world’s diverse people and places.
As modern communications and transportation bring our world closer together, knowledge of geography becomes more important. This course takes students to places around the world for a virtual first-hand look.
