MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – Students at Peabody Elementary School are showing off what they’ve learned about countries across the globe.

Friday’s festival was a chance for the students to showcase the different countries they’ve studied throughout the year. Each classroom represented a different country.

“As we grow as a country, it’s very important that we know about other countries. This will give students an opportunity to learn about other countries in case they want to study abroad.  Or they may want to work in a different country,” said principal Melanie Nelson. “So, they may get to learn about the economic system, they get to learn about their culture through the study of countries here.”

Students were also able to try traditional foods from each of the different countries.
