The United States is called a “Melting Pot” of different cultural elements from around the world. Do you know where some of your favorites originated? Many foods, celebrations, sports, and clothing, etc. have originated in other countries, but are now common in American culture. Use this activity to help your students to expand their understanding of our country’s unique culture that continues to be changed and expanded through the addition of new elements every day.
As we become a more global economy, American Culture embraces ideas and concepts from around the world every day. This fun activity allows students to research products from around the world to determine their origins. This research activity is a great way to reinforce to the students exactly what are “cultural elements”.
