We Live in an International Community

How many countries are you wearing right now? Challenge scholars to examine their own purchasing power by assessing where their clothing is from. First, each person finds out where the clothes they are wearing were made, and colors in the various countries on a blank political map. The challenge is extended at home, where learners look through their closets to find how many other countries they can color on their map. Use this as an introduction to globalization.

As a teacher in training I get fabulous ideas for lesson plans. Lesson Planet helps me to consider how to write effective learning targets.
