Arthur's World Neighborhood: Building Global and Cultural Awareness

Kids become global anthropologists as they explore commonalities and differences both in their classroom and expanding across the globe. Throughout several activities, learners conduct partner interviews that culminate in Venn diagrams, incorporate family stories and traditions, use a compass rose to practice directions on a map, and study cultures in other countries. There are also resources for a pen pal activity and a balloon globe geography project! Check out the Materials tab for printable worksheets to accompany the curriculum.
