Some time ago I developed a program entitled Travels in a Suitcase, a program designed for use within schools, daycares, after school programs and more, the intent was and still is to bring the rich history, culture and the arts from around the world to children everywhere, to create a mutual respect, understanding and appreciation for our global neighbors, from time to time I will highlight some of these 'travels' on the blog…
Today's Travels In A Suitcase takes us to Barbados. Measuring 166 square miles, this small island in the Caribbean celebrates its 50th anniversary of independence on November 30, 2016. After being settled in 1627 Barbados remained a British colony until it achieved independence on the 30th of November, 1966. Independence Day is a national holiday and is celebrated as such each year with community events, fairs, food and more!
