Cultural Connections is a series of 12 week long, literature based, hands-on curriculum guides that have been designed to be used with 6-8 year old children. These guides have been created to help introduce young students to the cultures and people from around the world. We will focus on the elements of life that we all have in common such as family, food, festivals, crafts, music, and games.

Unit Three will include activities for China, Canada, and Italy. Make paper lanterns, learn to play Crokinole, and enjoy homemade biscotti.
