Explorers Dave and Amy Freeman have traveled over 40,000 miles by canoe, kayak, and dogsled across vast stretches of wilderness in their quest to learn, share, and protect wild places and precious ecosystems. Overcoming extremely difficult physical and emotional challenges during months spent paddling through remote corners of the Amazon Rainforest and enduring -50F and blizzards while dogsledding across the Far North has helped the Freemans develop a simple, yet important set of life skills. These character education skills are as applicable at school and at home as they are on an expedition.
Using exciting stories, easy to understand examples, and students’ own experiences, this virtual character education school assembly teaches elementary school students basic concepts that help them excel at home and at school through the Freemans’ Expedition ABCs.
Attitude – Our attitudes are contagious! If we have a good attitude, we will pass it on to those around us, which helps us all learn and grow.
Believe – Believe in yourself while encouraging your peers to do the same.
Care – Being caring and considerate towards others is important in the classroom and beyond.
Do your best – Do your best and work hard at home and at school.
Exercise – From practicing math problems to passing soccer balls or setting up a tent in a blizzard, exercising our minds and bodies and helps us grow and learn.

Thank you so much! This was perfect for our ages and for all boys. The teachers and boys have all said how much they loved your presentation. I got pictures from teachers in the middle showing how engaged the boys were.
Thank you! We should have you again! Do you have other programs you recommend for this age group?
