Kids Around The World - Culture Lessons for K-5

Kids Around The World is a project sponsored by the National Peace Corps Association. The purpose of Kids Around The World is for elementary school age students to learn about life as a child in another country. Students can learn about the lives of their global peers in nineteen countries spread across four continents. Students visiting Kids Around The World can read interviews with a child from each country, view pictures and maps, and learn about the history and geography of each country. In case of some countries featured on Kids Around The World there are educational games to be played.

Applications for Education
Kids Around The World offers a lesson plan that can be divided up into three segments or used as a one day lesson. If you would like to create your own lesson plan, Kids Around The World provides a couple of worksheets, including a Venn diagram, that you can include in your plan.
