Our first journey was to Tanzania where we learned about the Maasai culture, and the animals of the Serengeti. We also taught the children how to count to 10 in Swahili, and taught them about Tingatinga art.
Our second stop took us to Australia where we showed the kids an authentic boomerang from renowned Aborigine, Laddie Timbery, a highly respected Koori elder from the Eora Nation. We also passed around an Australian walking stick, a didgeridoo, and created our own Great Barrier Reef art.
Read about our travels with the children at Lurie Children’s Hospital in their December 2013 Newsletter, Scribbles, under the section “Where would you be – without geography?”
Our experience bringing smiles to the faces of children at Lurie’s was nearly indescribable. We would like to extend a special “thank you” to the School Services Staff for allowing us the opportunity to bring the Wander Our WorldTM program to your kids. We look forward to seeing you again 2014!
