The Multicultural Caterpillar: Children's Activities in Cultural Awareness.
Matiella, Ana Consuelo
This booklet is part of the "Children's Activity Series," a set of four supplemental teaching resources that promote awareness about health, family life, and cultural diversity for children in kindergarten through third grade. The booklet includes eight easy-to-teach activities which introduce young children to the concepts of culture and cultural diversity. It provides a positive multicultural experience and includes illustrations and hands-on activities that help children prepare foods, build shelters, celebrate with music, and compare customs that express love and affection. Through the activities in the book, it is hoped that children will learn to appreciate their own uniqueness, respect similarities and differences among people, understand that many diverse kinds of people are Americans, and develop good feelings about themselves and others. This simply-structured teacher's guide is designed to help young children grow into adults who are open to the diversity of the world and its cultures. (NB)
