The World of Coca-Cola is conveniently located in the heart of the city of Atlanta, and because the beverage is a local favorite, the attraction is also one of the city's most famous.
Coca-Cola. It's a beverage, a powerhouse brand, and an attraction in Atlanta. But can it also offer an educational opportunity?
Have you explored the giant Coke bottles in the lobby, where approximately 200 countries were invited to decorate a bottle as a representation of their country? Have you ever studied the mural in the Hub that represents each of the seven continents through artwork and written languages? Have you experienced the flavors of Mexico, Africa, and Europe in the tasting room at the World of Coca-Cola?
If not, then you're not doing the World of Coca-Cola the right way. This famous Atlanta attraction offers more than just a fun and whimsical look into the history of our favorite soda. It's also an excellent choice for an educational outing with a school field trip or homeschool group.
The World of Coca-Cola Teacher Toolkits
The World of Coca-Cola is full of interactive and educational features that teach at every turn, but the attraction also offers educators a more in-depth look at how to make the most of an educational trip through an online Teacher Toolkit.
The attraction's Teacher Toolkits provide a way for educators to insure children receive a more in-depth look at the World of Coca-Cola from an educational point of view, through the use of instructional activities and helpful hints on how to best navigate the attraction with a class.
The Teacher Toolkit will relaunch this fall so that it can be aligned with the national Common Core standards for each grade level, making it accessible to teachers all across the country! The Teacher Toolkits for each grade level include activities to do during and after your visit to the World of Coca-Cola, so that the fun doesn't have to stop once you leave the attraction.
