The Candy Around the World Project is one opportunity in a forthcoming series of Global Exploration projects produced by GEC Co-Founder Lucy Gray. This project is inspired by a recent New York Times Magazine series on candy around the world.

Here are important details about this project.

  • Teachers and students from around the world are invited to join this project. Register for the project here.
  • The project runs from November 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018.
  • Students from ages 3-18 are welcome to participate (approximately prekindergarten through secondary grade levels).
  • Teachers must register and will receive regular updates and reminders.
  • Classes do not have to participate in all of the activities. Select which ones best fit your academic goals and schedule.
  • Teachers can supplement our planned activities with additional ones of their own choosing. See resources for ideas.
  • The culminating artifacts for this project will be several eBooks containing research, stories and artwork.
  • Additional live activities may be added to the project schedule (e.g., Skype with a dietitian, etc.), so stay tuned for updates.
  • The hashtag #candyexplorations will be our social media hashtag.
  • There is no cost to participate.
