Globalchild: Multicultural Resources for Young Children.
Cech, Maureen
"Globalchild" presents a well illustrated, easy-to-follow guide for teachers to incorporate multicultural activities into their classroom. Divided into six chapters, the first chapter helps teachers initiate the multicultural experience by setting the mood; introducing music and movement, art, discovery; and allowing group time and sharing of food. The second chapter follows the same organizational scheme but focuses on a harvest theme. The third chapter continues the same process (setting the mood, music and movement, art, discovery, group time, food sharing) with students engaging in a masquerade. Chapter 4 centers on the festival of lights; chapter 5 covers the new year; and chapter 6 concludes the volume with a spring theme. These activities present students with opportunities to learn about different cultures by participating in unique activities. Contains a select bibliography of 31 items and a pronunciation guide.
