On Thursday, Jan 19, Bear Creek Elementary held their 9th Annual Around The World event. For this event 26 families set up country displays in the gym with instruments, clothing, jewelry, photos, toys, foods and drinks native to their country of origin. Some of the countries that were showcased included: Argentina, Canada, P.R. of China, D.R. of Congo, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Taiwan and Thailand.
Bear Creek students present a boarding pass as they enter the gym to start their journey around the world. They go from table to table learning about the different countries, culture and sampling foods and drinks eaten there.
The students receive a passport as they leave documenting the countries that they visited along their journey.
