Fifth grade students at Connolly School engaged in a six-week exploration of different cultures. Each class adopted a different continent and students then split into groups to research countries within that continent. Fifth graders wrote about geography, landmarks, food and other important aspects of culture, and the culminating project was a research paper written collaboratively with other students in the group. Children presented the projects and then experienced different foods related to the countries and continent they researched. Learning about different cultures can be a great way of developing an understanding of cultural diversity.
