Do you ever struggle with helping bring about cultural awareness? Hands around the World is filled with 365 creative ways to help build cultural awareness in your students and to help us respect one another around the globe. There are activities for every day of the year.
So why am I talking about a cultural awareness book on my art day? Well.. you see, often part of building awareness with each other is engaging in crafting or art projects with each other. Reading the poems or seeing the crafts that people around the world make. Whether it’s a japanese wind sock, or colouring a flag, making a puppet so you can put on a puppet show of a native story, or even making a Batwa story mouse. There are so many ideas floating around the peoples of the world, why not build on them together?
What do you get?
365 ideas, one for every day of the year.
Ideas vary in their ranges: recipes, stories, activities, crafts, games, physical activities, and more.
Learn new skills such a folding napkins, making a homemade toy, acting, or putting on a cultural sale.
I love the sheer variety of tried and tested ideas presented in this great Kids Can! Book. Susan Milord does a great job of providing some very unique ways to help children from a variety of cultures connect with each other. It’s good to see how other people do things, to learn their history, and to discover how we express ourselves within our cultural heritage.
