Cultural Awareness/ Sharing Traditions

Students discuss topics relating to how their families celebrate holidays and observe certain religious customs. In this cultural awareness lesson, students work in groups to share their cultural traditions, the list similarities and differences in their cultures. Students then complete a homework assignment based on an interview given to a student outside the classroom who is not of their culture or race.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
