Readings and activities in this elementary school unit are designed to introduce students to Amish culture. Specific reference is made to the Amish communities in Iowa.

Each lesson contains a brief reading passage accompanied by activities or worksheets. Following the lesson plans is a section of handout materials, including recipes, evaluation questions, a crossword puzzle, and role playing cards. A bibliography is appended. The document is one of a collection of materials from the Iowa Area Education Agency 7 Teacher Center Project. (LP)
