Cultures of the World

Our Cultures of the World lesson plan teaches students about some cultures of the world and helps them learn about and respect other people’s cultures and beliefs. Students learn related vocabulary in addition to characteristics of various world cultures.

Our Cultures of the World lesson plan introduces students to a few cultures of the world and helps them learn about and respect other people’s cultures and beliefs. The term culture is used often and many young students may not clearly understand the meaning of the word, and the characteristics of a given culture. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to fill in a worksheet in which they answer questions about their culture; students then compare their answers to see where their cultures overlap or are different. Students are also asked to answer true/false questions about the lesson material, demonstrating their understanding.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define culture, list characteristics of a culture, and identify several cultures of the world.

    Beware of this company

    It appears that Clarendon has been taken over by Learn. I did not download all of my products and now my email address is not recognized and my links no longer function. Very disappointed!

    I always appreciate your lessons. It is so nice to have ready made materials available to print. Even if I don't print and use, I am able to read through, gain knowledge and ideas to supplement and create different lessons. I have found every Claredon lesson useful in some way.
