The pages shown accompany the first section of the book School Days Around the World in which Solomon, a young boy from Australia, describes a typical day at school. These pages are a representative selection of the entire packet.

This book is divided into 7 sections – one for each representative country.
Solomon: Australia
Riku: Japan
Rupa: India
Aseye: Ghana
Francis: England
Samantha: United States
Frida: Peru

You can purchase the book on Amazon for $3.99 (paperback or e-book). You can also read the e-book for free on WeGiveBooks.org (login required – free)

Suggestions for Use:
You could study a different child each day and complete all of the activities on that day. I estimate it would take about 45 minutes. The entire book study would last 7 days.

You could break down the activities and spend a week on each child/country. The entire book study would then last seven weeks.
Suggested break-down:
Monday: Read the story and fill in the KWL chart,
Tuesday: Vocabulary activity
Wednesday: Sequencing and True/False activities
Thursday: 10 Things I Learned and Comparison Chart
Friday: Writing prompt: If I Lived in…
