This summer, State’ 4-H Exchange is organizing a free virtual trip around the world!! During the month of June they traveled to Taiwan and Japan and in July, they are inviting YOU (youth ages 9-18) to explore Norway (Thursday, July 15, 11:00am) and Korea (Wednesday, July 28, 7:00pm). In August, they will be off exploring Argentina and Egypt.
Each session will be 75-90 minutes and will feature Language 101, Country Trivia, a Hands on Activity and Global Connection. Participants will have an opportunity for an intro to language learning, basic phrases and even some songs!! During Country Trivia, everyone will get a chance to test their knowledge about the country’s history and culture. There will be a hands-on craft or cooking activity that is unique to each country and there will be a chance to “connect” and learn from program partners and youth across the world.
The goals of the program are to:
- gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of other countries and cultures.
- learn new words and phrases through interactive activities.
- reflect on important aspects of one’s own culture.
- increase curiosity and the desire to explore the world!
