Social Studies - Other Cultures

Elementary students in a small rural area of West Virginia broaden their cultural awareness when they compare, contrast and analyze lives in different parts of the world.

“Our continent of study in third grade is South America and this project offers us great opportunity to visit places without ever actually going.  Students can map out their own points of interest within Rio de Janeiro and never need a tour guide. Instead of teaching proper grammar from a worksheet, students are able to practice real life experiences through making posts about the pictures.”

-Elizabeth Lallathin, primary teacher
