Cool Classes

This question is from 12-year-old Hallie: "If you could take a class about anything in the world, what topic would you choose and why?"

These girls shared their thoughts:

I'd sign up for a class about world cultures. I'm very interested in traveling, but since I'm a kid, I just travel wherever my family wants to go. Taking a class about different cultures would be a fun way to see the world while staying in the classroom.

I would take a snowboarding class at school. Taking a class could definitely help me to be an even more awesome snowboarder.

I would take a class about the ancient Mayan civilizations. I went to South America last summer and visited some Mayan ruins, so I'd love to learn more about them.

I'd love to take a class about understanding animals. I always wonder what my dog is thinking. I wish I could understand him better, so this class would be perfect for me.

I'm a huge music fan, so I'd really like to take a class in which I can learn how to be a pop singer. Fun, upbeat music always lifts my spirits.

My dream class would be about kindness. I love being nice to people and being a true friend, but it would be great to learn about more kind things I can do for others.
–Lesia, age 11, California

I would take a photography class. I love capturing life's special moments, and I'd like to learn how to take even better pictures. A photography class at my school would be so awesome.
–Katherine, age 10, New York

I would take a class about space. I am fascinated by stars and planets. We would look through high-powered telescopes, have stargazing parties, and end with a field trip to the moon. I can dream, right?
–Peony, age 13, Connecticut

I've always been interested in the people and language of Sweden, so I would like to take a class in which I could learn how to speak Swedish. We could go on a field trip to Sweden, too!

I would take a chess class. I love to play chess, and if I were to take it a class, maybe I could finally beat my mom!
–Elise, age 10, Illinois

I'd definitely take a class about oceanography. I'm a certified SCUBA diver, and I love everything about the ocean.
–Ariel, age 11, Colorado

Both of my parents work in the movie business, and since I'm home-schooled, I already get to take my dream class from them—film! I want to be a director when I grow up, so I have the perfect teachers.
