Bonlee, NC - Sixth graders in Trisha Caviness’ social studies class recently exposed Bonlee students to a tour of Europe. Each sixth grader became an expert on his or her assigned country by researching the customs, religion, language, location, physical geography, climate, and ethnic groups present in that country.

Students composed research papers and invited the entire school as well as the community to visit the culminating activity, a tour of Europe. The tour of Europe consisted of students dressed as members of their assigned countries standing with tri-fold display boards to assist them in presenting information to visitors as they presented the many interesting facts they have learned throughout this unit of study.

Caviness assumed the role of flight attendant in full attire as she welcomed students, parents, and community members to Europe, checked their passports, and directed them to specific destinations.

“It was absolutely phenomenal. The students did an outstanding job. Their work was amazing. I am so proud of their efforts and the thought and planning their teacher put into providing them this opportunity,” said Kim Taylor, principal at Bonlee School.
