Cultures of the World Book
In this paper craft, kids will learn more about people of another culture, and recognize more about themselves at the same time.
Each page on the left-hand side of this book will contain a picture and some information about people from another culture. Right-hand pages will have a picture and some information about your kids or someone from your own culture.
Don't just limit your information to what is different about your child and a child from another culture -- try to also find things you have in common!
You might want to choose a theme for your book, such as food, clothing, or music. Help kids do research to decide what they want to put in their books.
What You'll Need:
- Reference material (encyclopedias, Internet access, personal interviews)
- Cereal box
- 8-1/2x11-inch white paper
- Hole punch
- Ribbon or string
- Photos and/or magazine pictures
- Construction paper or contact paper
How to Make a Cultures of the World Book:
Step 1: To make a book, cut a 9-1/2x6-inch rectangle from the cereal box and place it picture-side up. Fold it in half, matching the 6-inch sides together.
Step 2: Stack 4 sheets of white paper, fold the sheets into quarters, cut along the top, and place the paper inside the folded cardboard.
Step 3: Punch 3 holes along the folded edge, through the paper and cardboard, and thread the ribbon through the holes. Tie the ribbon to bind the book.
Step 4: Decorate the outside of the book with markers or cover it with construction paper. Now fill your book with all your information!
