Our Excellent Adventure

Inspired by Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

Celebration Education did this theme in 2007-2008

Take a Bill & Ted approach for discovering how we can use the knowledge of the past to create an excellent future. We “kidnap” historical figures from all over the world and then learn about them, their time, and their place. Where applicable, we will incorporate stories from the "Who Is..." book series.

“We can change tomorrow. It comes around so fast,

With one foot in the future. One foot in the past.”

throughout the year.
