This 38 page unit was designed for 5-7 year olds in a multi-age classroom setting in Placencia, Belize. There are hands-on activity ideas and activity sheets to inspire students to think deeply about their families, communities and the country they live in. Please remember that the majority of this packet has to do with the country of Belize. This unit can easily be modified to connect with the country the student lives in. My philosophy is that little ones can learn BIG ideas through active engagement and meaningful experience!! This unit took us approximately two months as we took our time to learn the material.
Included in Packet:
1) Difference Maker Project
2) My Family in Belize/National Symbols
3) Exploring the Cultures of Belize (Maya, Mestizo, Garinagu, Kriol, East Indian, Chinese)
4) Cultural Day Project (3 Differentiated Reflection Sheets)
5) Leaders of Belize
6) Classroom Leader Speech Sheets (3 Differentiated Sheets)
