Social Studies: Counting Around the World

Second graders create Venn diagrams comparing and contrasting Japan, Mexico, and Tanzania. After reading books about the countries, they list number words found in the texts. In groups, they research one of the countries and create a mural. They also make replicas of the three national flags on cards and glue them to craft sticks. As items from the countries are displayed, they hold up the corresponding flag.

Lesson Planet has really helped me with not going "bonkers" over trying to find innovative and fun activities to incorporate into my daily lessons. Kids, even highschoolers whom I teach, don't want to have lectures all the way through each class period, so having activities that are fun can make students more involved which helps them learn the concept of whatever topic I'm teaching.
