Teachers Without Borders Peace Education Course – Blog #5 (11/10/2011)

Here is a sample lesson plan that I’m hoping to implement for my Peace Club.

Objectives: Have students expand their cultural awareness by learning about another culture in the world through research and correspondence.

Materials: Pencil, paper, encyclopedia/internet

Overview: Students will select a country (other than the United States) to research and identify some basic facts about the country. Then each student will be designated a pen-pal of similar age from that country to write letters/emails to in order to get a better understanding of their culture and what life is like there, as well as share about their life in the United States.
