Lets start this lesson by exploring Around the world and back.
You can do this as a class by going around the room and sharing individually. Or you can pair up and find out which culture your partner belongs to and share with the class at the end.
There are people of many cultures living in Aotearoa NZ today, from Māori, Pacific, Austrailan, Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, American, South African and European.
To start this lesson let’s begin by talking about the different cultures our classroom has or belongs to.
All around the world there are people from different countries that belong to different cultures. Some we know and some we even belong to.
