In Unit 5 we will discussing the different elements that make up culture! This unit is filled with amazing activities to help students learn about different cultures and bond with their classmates. We are kicking off the unit by analyzing types of traditions we celebrate that make up our culture. Students will be comparing their culture to other students around the world. There is an outside project with this Unit. You will be receiving the instructions on 10/7. We will work on the project in class and it is due on 10/11.

Culture PowerPoint 11/3
Students used this PowerPoint to introduce the concept of Culture!! Based on conversations had during class, all students have a great background of how culture is all around us. During this lesson one of the key ideas that was discussed is how the term "Melting Pot" is outdated. Instead of all of the cultures in the United States "melting" together, we keep our own culture and mix with other cultures. We discussed names for this concept leaning towards the idea of a "Salad Bowl."
