Cultural Connections—A Virtual RV Trip around the U.S.

As part of Doherty’s commitment to deep geographic and cultural studies, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten teachers and students embarked on a virtual RV trip around the United States. All pretend, the trip included an initial stop to rent the RV, a snack stop at the “gas station,” a moment to fill out and check their personal identification bearing their photos, and a time to “board” a virtual “RV,” which was located in the pre-kindergarten hallway. The regions of the United States were broken down, with pre-kindergarten studying the Southwest region of the United States, kindergarten studying the Southeast, Unit I the Northeast, Unit II the Midwest, Unit III the Northwest, and the Encore program studying Puerto Rico.
