Ellsworth Elementary, 38454 N. Carolina Ave., hosted its annual multi-cultural night on May 7. This event is a school-wide curriculum showcase of student research about the global community. Interdisciplinary projects in third and fourth grade included science research about the Australian and Arizona habitats. Second-graders explored the continent of Asia and their cultural influence and first-graders used language and art to study the Egyptian culture. Sixth- graders studied countries throughout the world, culminating in a live “wax museum” that included costuming and authentic cuisine. Fifth-grade students showcased a month-long state study that included a poster board with creative graphic designs and a signature food from the state that was studied. Attendees and families were able to sample complimentary cuisine from around the world while building a sense of school community and learning about our global neighbors.
