Have you ever wondered what it would be like to cast a vote for the Constitution in 1700s America? What if you could write your own myth in ancient Greece? Or create a haiku after exploring famous Japanese landmarks? In this educational camp, your student will experience all of this and more when you power up your time machine for Time Traveler Tales! In this camp for rising 4th-6th graders that combines both history and writing, students will weave through time, diving into a variety of different cultures, landmarks, and historical events. At each stop on their travels, students will learn about one new writing style, using it to enrich their experience of a historical topic. Interactive games, group activities, and crafts will further enhance students’ journeys. Your seat awaits on this journey to the past, launching in 3…2…1!
