Developed as part of an ethnic heritage studies program, this teacher's guide presents learning activities designed to facilitate an awareness of cultural pluralism for lower elementary students. Each activity is intended as part of a foundation for cultural understanding. Thirteen topics are covered: uniqueness of the child, contributions of other countries, uniqueness of families, basic biological needs, career development, contributions of ethnic groups, pluralism, personal experiences, ancestors, non-biological needs, respect, prejudice, and feelings. Suggested learning activities include group discussion, interviewing, story telling and story completion, recipes, letter writing, poetry, songs, bulletin boards, coloring and paper cutting activities, making a family tree, studying famous people, and puppet plays. It is organized so that each page can be removed and copied for classroom use. (CK)
