Children Just Like Me: 1st Grade CEU
Did you know that if the world were pictured as a village of 100 people, there would be 61 people from Asia, 13 people from Africa, 12 people from Europe, 8 people from South and Central America, 5 people from Canada and the U.S., and only 1 person from Oceania? Did you know that when young children in the Dominican Republic lose a baby tooth, they throw the tooth on the roof so that a mouse will find it and bring them a new one? Did you know that the people of Ndebele decorate the outside of their houses rather than the inside to tell their family history? Families pass down cultural traditions to their children through music, art, celebrations, foods, and literature. During this unit, students will explore the similarities and differences between themselves and children around the world.
