Where in the World is Estonia?
That’s just one of many geography trivia questions CCI staff members, Allison, Jillian, and Erin will be asking 5-9 year olds this Saturday morning at the International Family Festival held at the McGaw YMCA in Evanston, IL. The free event allows families from the surrounding communities to come out and learn about holiday traditions and cultures from around the world. Multiple stations will represent different countries and offer various activities, games, and much more!
The CCI table will feature a coloring station with maps of Europe, South America, and Asia that identify the countries were CCI exchange students come from. Geography Trivia will also challenge the minds of the kids and teach them about the world and cross cultural understanding. For those smarty pants who know that Estonia is in Europe (just south of Finland) or correctly answer the other trivia questions, they will get a CCI t-shirt or backpack or the grandprize: an inflatable globe! If you’re in Evanston this Saturday stop on by 10am- 2pm! We’ve been told the event is going to be a ton of fun. Otherwise, watch for a full report on Monday!
