Be sure your virtual immunizations are up to date and your passport is current before you set off on your whirlwind tour of some interesting countries in Asia. In each country you will be met by a guide who will show you some of the most interesting things about his or her country. You’ll learn about different aspects of the culture of each country, such as the importance of ancestors in Japan and respectful body language in Vietnam. Find out about special foods, the sports played in each country, and watch short videos of many events. There are several activities to try, and for teachers, a guide that has the learning goals for late elementary school students that are covered on this journey.
