The program used fairy tales from around the world to serve as a creative introduction to global studies for the school’s third grade students. Combined with cross-curriculum lessons in world geography, art, mathematics, music and physical education, the library helped students focus on a specific culture while crafting their own fairy tales, integrating common themes in order to illustrate the interconnectedness of world cultures.
