If the entire world and its people were represented in one theme park, what would the park look like? That is what students in this course learn as they design their own Global Village Theme Park. Students start the project by going on a global fact-finding mission seeking ways to honor their neighbors around the world. The mission includes Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North and South America, and the countries around the Pacific Rim. Students research the cultural and natural landscapes of the regions they visit. As modern communications and transportation bring our world closer together, knowledge of geography becomes more important. This course takes students to places around the world for a virtual first-hand look. As a special agent on a simulated journey of discovery, students will apply a Biblical worldview as they collect and critically analyze social, political, and economic facts about how cultures interact with each other and their physical world.

Biblical Integration Information:
The times and affairs of man are in the hands of the eternal and transcendent God. Human behavior and decisions often reveal our desire to grasp authority, coerce, manipulate, or intimidate others created in God’s image. Rather than being the master of our own fate, humans are created in the image of God and responsible to Him. Therefore, we should seek unity, justice, and reconciliation as we are guided by the principles of God’s Word. Our interactions with one another and with God can be patterned upon the historical person of Jesus Christ and sanctified as we relate to Him and seek His grace in our lives and times. Recognizing that our possessions and talents are to be used for the edification of our neighbor and the glory of God will lead us into true stewardship, citizenship, and social health as we wait patiently for His return and establishment of His eternal Kingdom.
