Global citizenship or world citizenship is the awareness that we are all connected, and all have a role in this wider world. The world is a diverse and interconnected place where objects, ideas, and people are constantly on the move. At Kid World Citizen, we believe we can prepare our children to be active, responsible "world citizens" by teaching them about a variety of cultural practices and beliefs.
Teachers are looking for concrete ways to incorporate global learning and multicultural awareness. This is the perfect introduction. No matter your age, our actions can affect and contribute to the world, and we share a destiny with all humankind. Global citizens fight for sustainability, are culturally aware, understand the importance of communicating across cultures and often speak another language, and take action on injustice around the world.
This activity uses one of our videos as a springboard for a discussion about what it means to be a "world citizen." Students can then use the coloring sheet to write or draw about their role in our global society. This is a great beginning of the year activity, writing prompt, or bulletin board display.
