Socials skills and knowledge can be taught to help us empathize with cultures different from our own, but true empathy can come from studying the world and people that make places so unique. Students will feel more connected to the global community by learning about the location of countries on a map and the structures that make those places unique. Expect your students to learn about places and structures that you never even thought to explore.
Teach the skills students need to complete the project tasks, or have them read the instructions and collaborate with peers to come up with answers. Challenge your students by having them use an atlas instead of the map provided. Add to the lesson by looking up the structures on Google Earth. Students can make models of each structure or even gather more information and write a report. Students will take off and learn more on their own once you provide the content or skills needed. Get their passports ready!
