This pack was designed for students in Pre-K, Kindergarten, and possibly young 1st graders.
There are 22 countries included in the pack (listed below) with a "letter from a native" of the country, informational sheet with a large picture of their flag and a few common phrases in that language, plus a recording sheet where students color the flag to match the large flag page, draw a picture of a tradition from that country and label it with a word or 2, and draw a picture of one of the foods and label it (examples of traditions and foods are included in the letter). There is also a cover and instructions on how to make a suitcase cover (travel stamps included!) to keep all the students recording sheets organized to create a kind of portfolio!
In my Pre-K classroom, we like to introduce the unit and make the suitcase the first day, then introduce a new country each day thereafter. I put the letter, flag sheet, recording sheets, materials for a craft from that country, a read-aloud book to go with the country, and a traditional treat from that country (if available) in a show box wrapped in mailing paper and decorated with our address and travel stamps to look like it came in the mail. The kids love to get a package each day from a friend in another country!
