Activity Description of Activities and Setting Time

Goodmorning class! I just wanted to start out by saying that I missed you all 5 mins
the past couple of weeks! The first week I was gone, I was in South Africa,
which is all the way over here (show on a Globe). Last week, I was just

getting back into the United States, which is the country we live in here, but I
was specifically flying into Washington, DC, which is here (show on the
globe). I hope that all of you have had a great past few weeks!
Today we are going to learn about different cultures! This is going to be 2 mins
pretty cool because I am sure that there are many different cultural back
2. Statement of Objective
grounds in this room! I am going to be able to talk about the culture in South
for Student
Africa and even show you some pictures!

Well first off, you must know what culture means! Does anyone know what 15 mins
culture means? (Allow students to respond; some may know, some may not,
but all comments are welcome). Well culture is different in many peoples
lives. Culture must do with language, art, religion, food, music, and many
other different things.
3. Teacher Input
We are going to go on a virtual field trip to South Africa!

Go through powerpoint with students and have props in hand.

4. Guided Practice 5-10 mins

Okay, now what I want us to do is to get into partners. I want you to pair up
with the people that are sitting next to you on the carpet. When you get into
those pairs I want you to discuss different things that are a part of your own
culture, in your own life. Are their meals that your family eats that is different
from your partners? Do you listen to different types of music? Do you have
different religions? Do you speak different languages? Talk about these things
that have to do with your own culture, and then with your partner also discuss
how that is different from the South African culture that we talked about.
Remember the different things about your culture and the South African
culture, because you will need to write about it!

Students will go back to their seat and will fill out a vein diagram that 5-10 mins
compares/contrasts their own personal culture and the South African culture.

Students will be graded on this and will receive points for identifying at least
three things about their own culture, three things about the South African

3 points: Aspects of own culture. (1pt each)
3 points: Aspects of S. African culture. (1pt each)
2 points: Similarities of the two. (1pt each)

To show master, students must earn 7 out of 8 points.

The teacher should be walking around, listening to conversations among students during

all objectives/skills: with partners, however, the putting to words to the paper was difficult for the students.

Reflection on lesson: The students were very engaged when they learning that we were going to go on a virtual field trip.
They were interested in what it was like to go through an airport, through security, and through the whole boarding
process. That was just to engage students into traveling to another country. From there students were able to explore
the country in which we traveled to. This allowed us to discuss different cultures and the aspects of culture. If I were to
do this lesson again I would consider doing an anchor chart that will be a constant reminder for students the different
aspects of culture. Overall, this lesson went pretty well.
