In my own building we have a lot of ESL kids. This activity is one we do as a grade level as a way for our kids to teach us about where they are from in the world (even if it is the United States). We post a world map on a bulletin board and kids research and write about where they are from in the world. Their writing mini-posters go up on the bulletin board all around the map. There are 2 different sizes of posters to choose from based on the number of kids completing this project. This project can also be sent home with kids to complete with their families.
Students will need to know some facts about the country in which they were born. They can research to find them!
