Around the World
Explore the world... without leaving Norwalk
USA Tour 2015
For the past six years, we have been bouncing back and forth across the globe, learning about different countries and the people that live in them. This year we will spend time exploring our own country, the United States of America.
Discover what makes each region and time period of the United States unique by taking part in these dynamic and engaging programs. Each month we will focus on a different region’s history, culture and landmarks. Be sure to visit all twelve!
Don’t forget! Participate in any of our Around the World programs and get your passport stamped. All aboard! The fun of discovery awaits!
