Cross Cultural Task Cards: Social Studies.
Quinn, Jeanette; Carty, Elaine
Twenty cross-cultural learning tasks focus on concepts developed through units on food, clothing, shelter, and natural resources. The tasks progress from simple to complex. They focus on concepts and vocabulary on culture, beginning with a discussion of housing and clothing and concluding with discussions on slavery and the Bill of Rights. Each task is divided into four parts: (1) motivation, which involves a judgment about an illustration or article; (2) activity, which requires the construction of a project relative to the concept dealt with; (3) questions intended to provoke thinking; and (4) map skills. Materials required for activities include clay, paint, balloons, drawing paper, rings, buttons, and scissors. The tasks may be used to supplement ethnic studies units. (KC)
