WHY CHOOSE AN AROUND THE WORLD CLASSROOM THEME

An Around the World Classroom theme lets you integrate geography and culture into your learning environment. First, it promotes a sense of adventure and is a reminder that there is so much out there to explore. Another favorite reason for choosing the Around the World classroom theme is that it really lends itself to setting the stage for charting all of the amazing places books can take you and your students to.

Additionally, it promotes diversity and an appreciation for cultural differences. 

Teachers love this theme because it is so flexible. You can use it to create a calm and natural feel to the classroom or you can choose to make your space bright and colorful.

While the Around the World Classroom theme is appropriate for all grade levels, it is an especially good choice as upper elementary classroom decor.
