At each level, instructional units focus on aspects of the host culture, with host country language instruction objectives included in each unit. A variety of instructional activities are suggested, to be used as desired by teachers. The second grade guide contains units on life in neighborhoods, including the characteristics of a neighborhood, neighbors needing neighbors, environmental aspects of the neighborhood, cultural aspects, safety rules, transportation, communication, and changes in the neighborhood.
