This unit, if used as a complete study, can be expanded and woven into every area of the middle elementary school curriculum. What you have in hand with these book studies are complete lessons that require very little extra development. The personal touch comes with the modifications for individual needs and teaching styles. Using these studies to create math and science lessons will turn your whole classroom into a spectacular multicultural learning experience.
Parent involvement Activity: If this unit has been used as a complete study with expansion activities, a parent celebration with refreshments from the different cultures studied, displays of the children's work, music, costumes, skits, author's chair etc. may culminate and bring closure to the exploration while involving parents in the learning of their children.
