The Earthtrek story

EarthTrek was conceived by experienced teachers who recognized that the prevailing testing-oriented curriculum has an impact on both teachers and students. EarthTrek brings much needed excitement and fun to the classroom, while positively reinforcing core curriculum areas (math, science, reading, language and social studies).

EarthTrek strives to:

  • Promote active, ccooperative learning.
  • Challenge the learning capacity of students.
  • Inject creativity and challenge into the classroom.
  • Develop more motivated, confident students.
  • Keep students engaged and energized.

With EarthTrek, students learn to look at the world from a global perspective and are introduced to the eye-opening benefits of travel. The competitive nature of the game encourages students both to learn and to be a team player as they race around the earth through challenges and activities.

“Active learning is, in short, anything that students do in a classroom other than merely passively listening to an instructor's lecture. This includes everything from listening practices which help the students to absorb what they hear, to short writing exercises in which students react to lecture material, to complex group exercises in which students apply course material to "real life" situations and/or to new problems.”
