As kindness and understanding among cultures becomes increasingly more important in our turbulent world today, it might be challenging to come up with ways to help students understand others’ backgrounds and relate to those perceived as different than them. As parents, friends, and teachers – we can only “tell” a child so much; the “showing” is where the experience becomes real.
In partnership with The Curriculum Corner, we’ve created this unit to help a child relate their own daily lives to those on the other side of the globe – experiencing everything from packing your bags, to speaking the language, to tasting the foods – and how those experiences run parallels to their own lives.
- 16 comprehensive lessons that detail the lesson's objective, materials, preparation, procedure, and extensions; lessons are focused on Japan but can be adapted for any country
- 82 downloadable materials including anchor visuals, graphic organizers, workbook creations, game pieces, and more.
