This is an individual lesson. If you would like to create a routine and introduce all your regions with a PEGS activity, you can purchase the same lesson as part of a PEGS bundle. It includes similar PEGS activities on East Asia, Japan, Europe, Italy, Latin America, Africa, India, and the USA. It is sold in my teacher store at a discounted price for the bundle.
