In the footsteps of Phileas Fogg


Students in Year 2 and 3 from the International School of Chonburi have followed in the footsteps of Phileas Fogg this term by learning about different countries in their topic ‘Around the World in 80 Days’.

During their week in India, the children visited a Sikh temple in Pattaya. They learnt about the rituals of Sikhism and joined in on a hearty feast called Langar.

During their week in Italy, the children visited ‘Pizza Big’ in Pattaya to learn how to make pizzas. They were introduced to the main ingredients by Italian Chef Roberto, and they were talked through the process of making the dough, putting the ingredients on top and baking it in the pizza oven. After all their hard work the children were rewarded with…pizza!

This topic opened up a world of discovery and helped them understand cultures and customs from different countries around the world. It also gave them a chance to be experts at where they come from and understand their place in the world.
