We have been doing a Cultural Unit Study during this school year. We take a couple days during the month to work on parts of it. This has been beneficial, with this type of study, to spread out our learning and grasp more of the concepts of cultures, diversity, and so on.
Today I created a game for my kids to match up cards from different cultures. We talk about the pictures on the cards, how the people might live, what part of the world they live in, and so on. The purpose of these cards is to help children become familiar with how different people from different cultures might look. Some of the cards also have people doing things such as painting, potery, drumming, washing clothes, dancing, cooking, and so on. Be sure to discuss with your child how the people in the pictures might “wash clothes” differently than they do in their home (laundry machine vs. by hand, etc.)
We are playing three different games with these cards.
Go World (like Go Fish)
