EINY – ¡Bienvenidos a Costa Rica!
In less than 4 months, EINY Middle School students will be traveling to Costa Rica for an 8 day trip that will include excursions to San José, Monteverde, the Arenal region and Sarapiquí from March 26-April 3, 2018.
On the trip, students will get to zipline through the rain forest, hike around an active volcano and visit a coffee plantation to learn about Latin American agriculture and economy. In addition students will study banana farming and how the fruit gets from the tree in Costa Rica to supermarkets around the world. Our students are also hoping to get the chance to visit a local school and interacts with students from Costa Rica.
Middle school teachers, Lauren Gagne, Nowaki Asada and Colin Cavarroc will be traveling with 12 students in grades 6-8. In addition to the trip, students will be completing a cross curricular project that includes a video and soundscape map of Costa Rica in French, English and Spanish.
