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.

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.
