    Culture Poster Description:

    This is an assignment for students to explore a culture of their choice (or one you assign).

    It is a poster designed to illustrate and label the main aspects of culture. I recommend using white construction paper. If you complete digitally, Google Slides is a great resource.

    Students will create an Aspects of Culture poster based on a culture. It should include all 10 aspects of culture, titles, 2-3 colored pictures, and captions. Create two rows with five columns. Create a poster that showcases all your culture has to offer and put your best effort forward. You will be graded on information, accuracy, grammar, spelling, and neatness.

    Sample of USA poster included in the instructions. I also posted two student samples.

    Culture Research Assignment:

    Wrapping up a unit on culture? Want your students to research a particular culture?

    Well than this is the assignment for you! This assignment will allow students to work collaboratively on a Google Slides presentation, researching a culture of their choice while incorporating the aspects of culture into their work.

    Document is editable to meet your needs. Grading rubric is included.

    Here is a preview:

    Directions: With a partner or small group, create a Google Slides presentation on a culture/country of your choice. Research the aspects of culture of that particular country/culture and then put your final information into your presentation.

    Slides Organization: Include a title slide with your names, culture/country name, and a related image(s). Each body slide should focus on a different aspect of culture. It must include the appropriate information and an image(s). If you need to divide one aspect/topic into more than one slide, that is okay.

    Optional piece: Last slide: 30 sec - 1 min video clip of you interviewing someone from your culture (parent, grandparent, neighbor, etc.) Must be 25 years old or older. *More information about the interview is on the back.
