If time allows, students should put together a personality bag. The bag should include about ten items that reflect the student’s personality and culture. For example, if a student was Jewish, the student would put a bagel into the bag. The bagel would represent the student’s culture and it would represent that the student liked to eat bagels. The bags should be presented orally to the class, and the student should explain the items in the bag. This fun activity will give students additional information about their classmates and their classmates’ cultures. Also, students may find that they have much in common with different cultures.
