This study guide was developed by the Peace Corps' Office of World Wise Schools. The aim of the guide is to promote better understanding of other people on the part of the people of the United States. Teachers can use the book to supplement the study of Central America or the environment. Using the materials, students will learn to: (1) identify similarities and differences between their lives and the lives of young people in another country; (2) apply geographic themes to the country of Honduras; and (3) research the geography and culture of a Peace Corps volunteer's hoist country. A unit for grades 3 through 5 focuses on the geographic themes of location, place, and relationships within places. The latter two themes are also the subject of units for grades 6 through 9 and 10 through 12. Each of the units includes information for teachers and worksheets. Sixty-three references and a list of people and organizations that provided information for the study guide are attached. (LBG)
