Grandmother, What A Big Culture You Have!: Cultural Characteristics

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

A word splash activity introduces scholars to the instructional activity's theme—cultural characteristics. First, in examining Little Red Riding Hood by The Brothers Grimm, learners highlight the cultural characteristics and then spot the differences in two other readings of a similar story. The class compares and contrasts the cultural characteristics to answer the instructional activity's essential question.
