Third-graders in N.Y. begin a survey of the world map skills, continents, oceans, ecosystems and habitats) and study urban, suburban and rural communities. The Jambo show contrasts urban and rural communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America (with an emphasis on rural), and introduces the concept of “culture” by depicting how people in villages are self-sufficient without electricity, running water and indoor plumbing.
In addition, while the fifth-graders study the Western Hemisphere (with an emphasis on U.S. History), Jambo shows venture into Latin America and study the geography and history of Aztec, Maya and Inca culture. The program covers Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Brazil, Bolivia and Cuba.
Many thanks to Diane Krupin, Districtwide Enrichment Services, the SC PCA and Mr. Harrold for bringing this interactive, multicultural show to Sea Cliff Elementary.
