Teacher Notes: Multiculturalism
Map of World with Flags for Student and Staff Country
I put up a map of the world and connected
yarn from the countries where students and staff members came from
to the flag of that country. The children would get excited when
they saw their country's flag.
Email Around the World Project
An interesting project I was involved in was sending and
receiving emails from schools all around the world. I posted a large
world map and posted the emails with yarn stretched from the email
to the country. On the email I placed the flag of that country.

Monthly Multicultural Calendar
Prepare a large oak tag chart for each month. On this
chart put all of the days of the month and the birthdays of famous
people and important events. For each day list one item and try to
choose items that reflect multiculturalism. Each month I would hang
that chart in my room.
