Travel to Ukraine with this complete unit!
60 pages of informational reading passages and activities to discover about:
Where in the world is Ukraine,
Ukraine Fast Facts,
Ukraine's geography and landscapes,
Comparing Ukraine to your country,
Ukraine's rich history,
Ukraine's Natural Resources and Industries,
Ukraine's People and their culture: their traditional clothing, celebrations, folk dance, food and schooling,
Ukraine's Important places and
Art in Ukraine and designing your own eggs
Graphic web organizers are included for students to record all their learning while reading the passages and completing the activities for each topic. After all the information has been recorded, students compile their information into well written paragraphs to create the Ukrainian Nesting Doll booklet, where just like the dolls, the pages get smaller and smaller!
Final project is to create a life sized trifold of a Ukrainian girl or boy in traditional Ukrainian clothing with a background landscape that would be found in Ukraine. Makes a great photo booth frame for the students to stand behind and put their faces into the face of the child spot and "travel" to Ukraine!
Have fun traveling to Ukraine!
