Island School kids learn about Oman market

Island School on Bainbridge Island recently ended its monthlong Cultural Study of Oman by shopping at an outdoor market, or souk.

Student vendors sold handmade crafts and trading cards that reflect the mosaic art, animals and other highlights of the country of Oman.

Throughout the month students engaged in hands-on cultural immersion with teachers, community and online experts and parents.

The study introduced children to the larger community and encouraged them to ask what roles they can play in caring for their world and in becoming respectful world citizens.

They learned about the history, religion, language, food, art and traditions of the country of study. Recent studies have featured Norway, Indonesia, Australia and Brazil. Oman is between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

At the market, Liviana Lannon Eatinger, 8, sold paper lanterns and handmade trading cards; Kavi Danielson, 9, made cards featuring sea turtles, mosques, palm trees and camels of Oman; Scottie Carver, 9, made hand-painted evil eyes, origami animals and paper lanterns; and Chris Butterly, 8, and Billy Baxter, 8, sold Omani flag bookmarks and paperweights.

The Island School is an independent school educating students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
