World Exploring
Understanding other places, other cultures

To interest students in the places Constitution visited, trace her Around the World Cruise on a map of the world. Then ask students to examine the labels in their clothing, backpack or toy to see where the item was manufactured. How many of these countries did Constitution visit?

globeTo learn more about a country and its culture, if you have a diverse student population, you might invite family members of students of different ethnic backgrounds to come and talk to the class about their countries of origin — the customs, beliefs, history, problems and the hopes and dreams of its people.

Have on Hand- a world map

Ask students to compute the number of children who brought in coins to equal $154,000 if each brought in a penny, a nickel, a dime. Weigh each type of coin. How much would $154,000 in each denomination weigh? How far would the coins reach if laid in a row?

Ask students to convert the table of “Melting Pot Crew” in Scuttlebutt IV into bar graphs, circle graphs and pictographs.
