Samoset Students Explore World Cultures

Samoset Students Explore World Cultures
Students from Samoset Middle School gained valuable insight into the unique characteristics of different countries, cities and cultures from around the world during a recent assembly program led by photographer and world traveler Michael Harrold. 

As part of the captivating presentation, Harrold explained several weapons, tools and toys that he acquired from trips to more than 75 countries. He wowed the auditorium of sixth-grade students with photos from his travels to places including Burma, Dubai, Egypt, Greece, India and Thailand. Students learned about ceremonial clothing, different religions, animals and native foods in addition to how each culture utilizes the natural resources available to them.  

Harrold concluded his presentation with a motivational message to students. “Don’t stop learning when you leave the classroom,” he said. “Become citizens that continue to learn throughout your life. Become lifelong learners.”
