This study guide was developed for teachers and students participating in the Peace Corps World Wise Schools program. The primary purpose of the study guide series is to enhance each class's correspondence with its Peace Corps Volunteer and to help students gain a greater understanding of regions and cultures different from their own. The specific purpose of the guide on Lithuania is to provide teachers and students with a structured approach to learning about people and places in Lithuania, one of the newly-independent countries of the former Soviet Union. Divided into three sections, part 1, "Information for Teachers," provides background information on Peace Corps, geography themes and an introduction to Lithuania. Part 2, "Activities," features supplemental activities grouped for three academic levels, grades 3-5, grades 6-9, and grades 10-12. Part 3, "Resources," provides a variety of resources including worksheets, maps and a 23-item bibliography. The lessons can be used across different grade levels. Students should be able to identify patterns of culture and geography, thus broadening their understanding of other countries. (EH)
