“Learning is not a spectator sport. Students do not learn much just by sitting in class listening to teachers, memorizing prepackaged assignments, and spitting out answers. They must talk about what they are learning, write about it, relate it to past experiences, apply it to their daily lives. They must make what they learn part of themselves.”

EarthTrek targets the academic learning in grades 3, 4 and 5. At this level the need to stimulate and encourage the desire to learn is critical. Research has demonstrated that students learn more if they are actively engaged with the material they are studying. The most effective results in cognitive development come from active study.
Well, I should first say that whenever I come inside the room and look into the kid's eyes, I can see they are hardly breathing, and trying not to make any sound in order to hear this magical sentence: CHILDREN , NOW ITS TIME FOR EARTHTREK!

Before my daughter started EarthTrek, she was fine with going to the beach or Disney. Now she wants to go to Italy, France, and she has even mentioned going to Australia…She even knows where the cities are located…It’s more hands on for the children, so I think she’ll remember it more.
