My school will be considered a global school this upcoming year. In preparing for this transition, I created this packet to introduce my kiddos to the concept of what it means to be globally aware. Everything is ready to be copied and used, with no other preparation! Simple language and activities are included to help students understand what it means to be culturally sensitive.
Schools that focus on global awareness achieve three significant outcomes:
1. Using 21st century skills to understand and address global issues
2. Learning from and working collaboratively with individuals representing diverse cultures, religions, and lifestyles in a spirit of mutual respect and open dialogue in personal, work, and community contexts
3. Understanding other nations and cultures, including the use of non-English languages
This packet is intended to introduce the concept of global awareness to second grade students.
