Grade 3- 5
Students identify, locate, and use resource materials to find required information and interview people in the school or community
Discuss with students the many different cultural backgrounds from which different people in your community originate. Discuss students' own families and the countries that their parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents might have come from.
Talk about celebrations and customs that students participate in, and how these differ according to culture.
Discuss with students different people whom they can interview for this project. If they do not have family, friends, or neighbors who they can interview, suggest someone at school who might be able to help.
Make sure students understand the vocabulary. Share research reports in the class or have guest speakers give presentations.
