Kid World Citizen
This week for homework I would like you to explore a global education website. My good friend Becky Morales runs an amazing website that has great things for students, teachers, parents and anyone thinking globally.
Here is the link http://kidworldcitizen.org
For your homework I would like you to:
- Explore the website and tell me two new things you have learnt.
- Find the geography page and share one thing you found.
- Leave Becky a message telling her all the things that you really like about her website.
Here is a picture of Becky and her family and a little bit of information from her website about why she started kid world citizen. She is a real inspiration to Mrs Joyce and one day Mrs Joyce hopes she can have a global website to share her passion for learning with others.

I developed Kid World Citizen to be able to share the educational activities that I have used in my classroom and at home with my 4 children to increase global and cultural awareness.
