Students will find out where Tibet is prior to the reading. They will tell the “story” of Tibet by looking at a variety of maps. Students will view a video to give students information about Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. Students will record three facts about Mount Everest from the video. Next students will do a “Guided Reading” around the book Namaste in order to find out the cultural experiences/traditions of Tibetan people. There are many activities that students can choose to synthesize/enrich their knowledge of cultural aspects of Tibetan life.
