A Day in the Life

We often see other countries depicted in movies, but getting a close look at a typical day in the life of a young person from another country isn't as common. Give your pupils such a look with a resource that helps class members explore, through discussion and writing prompts, the similarities and differences in daily routine they might have with a young boy from India.
