3 Meaningful questions to bring multi-culture learning experiences into your homeschool and classroom.
Blizzard Weather & Community Helpers
Building Character: Being that December brings so many gift boxes, shipping boxes and in January bottles and plastic wraps to our homes and classroom, this group project would be a fun way to use them. Teaching our children that we all need to help each other to be safe during a snow storm and a community is filled with people of all different colors, sizes, faces, clothing, talents, skills and a big snow storm is a good way to bring multi-culture awareness into their learning experiences. Children learn best while playing and connecting familiar props to express community togetherness will be everlasting in their memories. And by using recycled materials or materials from earlier lesson plans, they'll learn to find ways to be resourceful and creative to make things work at home and at school. Fun, fun, fun!

Block Center Toy People For Community Helpers
1. What can we use from our recycling box that looks like snow?
They found bubble wrap, clear plastic packing, white construction paper and used their glue from the art center as it's ground cover. Roll the pom poms in and on top of the pretend snow like big snow boulders
2. What toy friends can we use to show our love and friendship?
During Thanksgiving we discussed different ways the Native Americans Indians live in our country and they wanted to help them to stay safe and warm in our winter community. They placed tee pees as their homes in the snow. Allow them to expand with their tree study and place a felt pine tree too. Creativity!
3. Can we find community helpers from our block center that can help our friends & neighbors?
The Block Center was where they headed to find all of the community helpers. They were different sizes, colors and were police officers, firemen, construction workers, street helpers and children helpers. They even placed the fire dog in their winter scene to help too.
