Come with us on an adventure around the world in 30 days. We will be exploring English while seeing the world!
We will explore the world in a number of different ways. We will incorporate ESL learning, arts and crafts, games, puzzles, and projects. We will work our way through parts of speech, conversation, writing, and pronunciation. We hope this will greatly deepen not only your knowledge of the English language, but your desire to learn as well. The arts and crafts for this camp will be very diverse in nature. We will attempt to create artifacts from the countries we visit. This could be a fun piece of art or a full on craft project we will create to fit in with the locals. Also, who said learning cannot be fun? We will have loads of fun playing games and doing puzzles to help us figure out our journey and travel plans. These puzzles will guide us around the world. We hope that you will enjoy your trip around the world sponsored by the Hans Language School. To complete your journey, we will celebrate the end of our travels. This will include a party, movie viewing, awards day, and a fun showcase of your crafts to your parents. We are very excited that you have decided to join our group of travelers.

Why  was  the  Eiffel  Tower  Built       The  Eiffel  Tower  was  built  for  the  1889  World  Fair  which  also  coincided  with  the   centenary  of  the  French  Revolution.  Out  of  a  number  of  designs  submitted  as  part  of  a   competition,  Alexandre  Gustave  Eiffel  won,  and  was  responsible  for  erecting  the  Eiffel  Tower.

Following  are  a  few  important  facts  about  the  Eiffel  Tower:
  The  erection  of  the  Eiffel  Tower  began  on  January  26,  1887  and  was  completed  on   March  31,  1889.  It  took  2  years,  2  months,  and  5  days  from  start  to  finish.  Alexandre   Gustave  Eiffel  was  the  main  architect,  Maurice  Koechlin  and  Emile  Nouguier  were  the   main  engineers,  Stephen  Sauvestre  was  the  main  architect,  and  Jean  Compagnon  handled   the  construction  of  the  Eiffel  Tower.  Alexandre  Gustave  Eiffel  is  the  very  person  who   created  the  internal  frame  of  the  Statue  of  Liberty  in  the  year  1885.  The  Eiffel  Tower  stands   324  meters  tall.  The  material  used  for  the  Eiffel  Tower  was  9441  tons  of  wrought  iron   (puddle  iron)  of  the  highest  quality.  A  total  of  18038  pieces  of  wrought  iron  were  joined   together  to  create  the  Eiffel  Tower.  Approximately  60  tons  of  paint  is  required  to  paint  the   Eiffel  Tower.  The  Eiffel  Tower  is  painted  every  7  years  in  3  shades  of  brown  (darkest  shade   at  the  bottom).  Even  today  painting  the  Eiffel  Tower  is  done  using  brushes.  In  clear   weather  (very  seldom  seen  today)  you  can  see  approximately  42  miles  from  the  top  of  the   Eiffel  Tower.  The  base  of  the  Eiffel  Tower  covers  a  square  area  of  100  meters.  The  Eiffel   Tower  was  to  be  dismantled  and  the  metal  sold  as  scrap  20  years  after  it  was  constructed,   but  this  never  happened.  The  Eiffel  Tower  was  the  tallest  structure  when  it  was  built,  but   this  has  been  surpassed  over  the  years.  Today,  the  Eiffel  Tower  is  open  to  the  public  every   day  of  the  year.  You  can  use  the  steps  only  till  the  second  platform  (the  third  platform  is       accessible  only  via  elevators).  Over    200  million  people  have  visited  the  Eiffel       Tower  since  its  inception

Home  of  the  Olympics
                                     The  OlympicsThe  Ancient  Olympic  Games  was  a  series  of  competitions  held  
between  representatives  of  several  city-­‐states  and  kingdoms  from  Ancient  Greece,  which   featured  mainly  athletic  but  also  combat  and  chariot  racing  events.  During  the  Olympic   games  all  struggles  against  the  participating  city-­‐states  were  postponed  until  the  games   were  finished.  The  origin  of  these  Olympics  is  shrouded  in  mystery  and  legend.  One  of  the   most  popular  myths  identifies  Heracles  and  his  father  Zeus  as  the  creator  of  the  Games.   According  to  legend,  it  was  Heracles  who  first  called  the  Games  "Olympic"  and  established   the  custom  of  holding  them  every  four  years.  A  legend  persists  that  Heracles  built  the   Olympic  stadium  as  an  honor  to  Zeus.                                        The  most  widely  accepted  date  for  the  inception  of  the  Ancient  Olympics  is  776  BC;   this  is  based  on  inscriptions,  found  at  Olympia,  of  the  winners  of  a  footrace  held  every  four   years  starting  in  776  BC.  The  Ancient  Games  featured  running  events,  a  pentathlon   (consisting  of  a  jumping  event,  discus  and  javelin  throws,  a  foot  race  and  wrestling),  boxing,   wrestling,  and  equestrian  events.  Tradition  has  it  that  Coroebus,  a  cook  from  the  city  of  Elis,   was  the  first  Olympic  champion. 1.

Chernobyl Disaster
In  April  1986,  Chernobyl'  (Chornobyl'  in  Ukrainian)  was  an  obscure  city  on  the  Pripiat'  River  in  north-­‐central   Ukraine.  Almost  incidentally,  its  name  was  attached  to  the  V.I.  Lenin  Nuclear  Power  Plant  located  about  twenty-­‐ five  kilometers  upstream. On  April  26,  the  city's  anonymity  vanished  forever  when,  during  a  test  at  1:21  A.M.,  the  No.  4  reactor  exploded   and  released  thirty  to  forty  times  the  radioactivity  of  the  atomic  bombs  dropped  on  Hiroshima  and  Nagasaki.  The   world  first  learned  of  history's  worst  nuclear  accident  from  Sweden,  where  abnormal  radiation  levels  were   registered  at  one  of  its  nuclear  facilities. Ranking  as  one  of  the  greatest  industrial  accidents  of  all  time,  the  Chernobyl'  disaster  and  its  impact  on  the   course  of  Soviet  events  can  scarcely  be  exaggerated.  No  one  can  predict  what  will  finally  be  the  exact  number  of   human  victims.  Thirty-­‐  one  lives  were  lost  immediately.  Hundreds  of  thousands  of  Ukrainians,  Russians,  and   Belorussians  had  to  abandon  entire  cities  and  settlements  within  the  thirty-­‐kilometer  zone  of  extreme   contamination.  Estimates  vary,  but  it  is  likely  that  some  3  million  people,  more  than  2  million  in  Belarus'  alone,   are  still  living  in  contaminated  areas.  The  city  of  Chernobyl'  is  still  inhabited  by  almost  10,000  people.  Billions  of   rubles  have  been  spent,  and  billions  more  will  be  needed  to  relocate  communities  and  decontaminate  the  rich   farmland. The  Chernobyl'  catastrophe  derailed  what  had  been  an  ambitious  nuclear  power  program  and  formed  a  fledgling   environmental  movement  into  a  potent  political  force  in  Russia  as  well  as  a  rallying  point  for  achieving  Ukrainian   and  Belorussian  independence  in  1991.  Although  still  in  operation  up  until  the  year  2000,  the  Chernobyl'  plant  is   now  totally  shutdown.  

Answer  the  Questions:
1. What  year  did  the  Chernobyl  disaster  take  place? 2.What  time  did  it  happen? 3. Who  were  the  first  people  outside  of  Russia  to  discover  something  happened? 4.Which  other  two  countries  now  independent  of  Russia  were  greatly  affected? 5.How  many  people  still  live  in  Chernobyl? 6.What  year  was  Chernobyl  completely  shut  down? OPINION: Why  do  you  think  people  would  still  live  in  contaminated  and  dangerous  areas?

Mehindi  (henna)
Here  are  some  examples  of  typical  mehindi   designs.  

[76]

Design Your Own Mehindi
Mehindi  is  the  application  of  henna  as  a  temporary  form  of  skin  discoloration  in  theIndian  Subcontinent,  as  well   as  by  expatriate  communities  from  these  areas.  Mehndi  decorations  became  fashionable  in  the  West  in  the  late   1990s,  where  they  are  sometimes  called  henna  tattoos.  Henna  is  typically  applied  during  special  occasions  like   weddings  and  festivals  like  Divali,  Bhaidooj,  Teej  and  Eid.  In  some  Hindu  festivals  every  woman  tries  to  have   Henna  done  on  her  hands  and  feet.  It  is  usually  drawn  on  the  palms  and  feet,  where  the  color  will  be  darkest   because  the  skin  contains  higher  levels  of  keratin  which  binds  temporarily  to  lawsone,  the  colorant  of  henna.   Henna  was  originally  used  as  a  form  of  decoration  mainly  for  brides.

There  are  two  kinds  of  crocodile  in  Australia:  the  Estuarine,   a  saltwater  crocodile  and  Johnsons,  a  freshwater  crocodile.   Both  are  found  in  the  hot,  tropical  northern  part  of  the   continent. The  Estuarine  crocodile,  while  it  can  live  in  salt  water,  is  able  to  go  quite  far  up  river  into   fresh  water.  It  is  one  of  the  most  dangerous  of  all  the  crocodile  family,  being  the  biggest   and  heaviest.  It  grows  to  between  4  and  7  metres  long.

Supplies • Green  Card • Green  Paper • 2  sticks • glue  /  tape
Either  draw  a  crocodile  head  and  tail  on  green  card  or  print  out  our  template,  and  cut  out. Cut  out  a  rectangle  of  green  paper  about  10cm  by  30cm.  Lie  the  paper  flat  in  front  of  you.   Fold  over  a  piece  about  1cm  wide.  Turn  the  paper  over  and  fold  again,  forming  a  concertina.  Keep   going  until  all  paper  is  folded.   Glue  one  end  of  the  paper  to  the  head  and  the  other  to  the  tail. To  make  the  teeth,  cut  a  triangle  from  white  paper  and  glue  to  the  face,  drawing  on  a  zigzag  for  the   teeth.   Cut  two  circles  from  white  paper  for  the  eyes  and  glue  these  to  the  head,  drawing  on  the  pupils. Finally  tape  a  lolly  stick  to  the  back  of  the  head  and  one  to  the  tail.

“I want my mummy!”
Today we are making a mummy of our own!
The earliest ancient Egyptians buried their dead in small pits in the desert. The heat and dryness of the sand dehydrated the bodies quickly, creating lifelike and natural 'mummies'. Later, the ancient Egyptians began burying their dead in coffins to protect them from wild animals in the desert. However, they realized that bodies placed in coffins decayed when they were not exposed to the hot, dry sand of the desert. Over many centuries, the ancient Egyptians developed a method of preserving bodies so they would remain lifelike. The process included embalming the bodies and wrapping them in strips of linen. Today we call this process mummification.
Read  through  the  first  page  only.    Type  ‘True’  or  ‘False’  next  to  the  following   statements: 1. The  earliest  Ancient  Egyptians  buried  their  dead  in  small  pits  in  the  desert.   2.  The  bodies  were  dried  out  by  the  heat  and  dryness  of  the  sand. 3.  Later,  Egyptians  decided  the  bodies  were  preserved  better  in  coffins. 4.  The  Egyptians  began  mummification  to  save  money  on  coffins. 5.  The  Egyptians  began  preserving  the  bodies  of  their  dead  so  that  they  remained  life-­‐like.

Liberty Bell
The Liberty Bell, located in Pennsylvania, changed the world on July 8, 1776. It rang out from the tower of Independence Hall. It was used to summon the citizens to hear the first reading of the Declaration of Independence by Colonel John Nixon. In the 1800s, the Liberty Bell became a symbol for ending slavery in America. The Liberty Bell is famous for its large crack. People don't know when the crack first appeared on the bell. The crack got worse over time and people didn't want the bell to break apart.

THE  DAY  OF  THE  DEAD
“El  Dia  de  los  Muertes”
Background  Information
•  El  Día  de  los  Muertos  began  as  a  pre-­‐Columbian  celebration  and  was  greatly   influenced  by  the  Spanish. •  It  is  a  ritual  honoring  the  dead  and  has  been  practiced  for  nearly  3,000  years  by  pre-­‐ Hispanic  groups  such  as  the  ancient  Maya,  Aztec,  and  Toltec. •These  groups  occupied  Mexico,  Guatemala,  and  Belize. •When  the  Spaniards  arrived,  they  tried  to  convert  the  Aztecs  to  Catholicism,  which   meant  they  had  to  destroy  this  ritual,  but  the  Aztecs  refused  to  let  this  sacred  ritual  die. •In  pre-­‐Hispanic  times,  el  Día  de  los  Muertos  was  celebrated  in  August.  When  the   Spanish  could  not  destroy  the  holiday,  they  moved  it  to  November  1st  (All  Saints  Day)   and  November  2nd  (All  Souls  Day)  to  make  the  ritual  more  Christian. •Today  it  is  celebrated  more  in  smaller  towns  than  in  the  cities.  This  tradition  is  slowly   fading.  (Do  you  think  the  same  thing  is  happening  with  holidays  and  traditions  in  the   U.S.?)

Events
•Families  go  to  the  cemetery  and  decorate  the  graves  with  flowers.   •They  build  ofrendas  (alters  with  offerings)    in  the  homes  with  gifts  for  the  deceased. Skulls   •Skulls  symbolize  death  and  rebirth.   •The  Aztecs  and  Mesoamerican  civilizations  kept  skulls  as  trophies  and  displayed  them   during  rituals.   •The  skulls  were  also  used  to  honor  the  dead.   •The  skulls  are  typically  grinning  because  they  are  laughing  at  death.   •  They  can  be  made  from  paper,  wood,  paper  mache,  tin,  or  sugar. Calacas   •These  are  toy  figurines  for  children.   •They  are  used  to  introduce  the  concept  of  death  to  children  so  that  they  arenot  afraid   of  it.

Easter  Island
The  mysterious  Moai
This  is  a  really  mysterious  statue. It  comes  from  Easter  Island  in  the  Pacific  Ocean,  a  small  island   famous  for  giant  stone  figures  called  moai.  Around  1000  moai  were   carved,  probably  to  commemorate  important  former  chiefs  who  were   revered  as  divine.  By  1600  the  islanders  ceased  to  make  moai  and   they  began  to  topple  and  even  bury  some  of  them.  The  means  used   by  islanders  to  transport  theses  enormous  statues  (11  m.  tall)  have   never  been  satisfactorily  explained.  Native  accounts  claim  that  the   statues  were  dragged  with  heavy  rope  while  small  round  stones   placed  beneath  the  statue  served  as  rollers. Easter  Island  is  mainly  grassy,  with  steep  cliffs  and  extinct  (dead)  volcanoes.  Nowadays  it  is   part  of  the  country  of  Chile,  and  its  local  name  is  Rapanui.  The  name  'Easter  Island'  came   from  a  Dutch  sea  captain  named  Jacob  Roggeveen,  who  landed  there  on  Easter  Sunday  in   1722. In  1774,  the  English  explorer  Captain  James  Cook  visited  the  island  and  his  ship's  artist,   William  Hodges,  painted  its  statues,  some  wearing  'hats'  of  reddish  rock. Who  made  these  giants,  and  why?

1. What  ocean  is  Easter  Island  found  in? 2.What  are  the  statues  called? 3. Are  the  volcanoes  active  still? 4.Why  is  it  called  Easter  Island? 5.How  tall  are  the  Moai  on  average?
