This elementary-level thematic unit on India was designed to serve as a stepping stone toward the goal of mutual respect among children of different backgrounds. This unit may take one to four weeks depending on the class time. To expand children's awareness of the Indian culture, many hands-on activities are included. This unit was developed with the idea of integrating all parts of the curriculum. Curriculum areas include the following: Foreign Language; Math; Language Arts; Drama; Music; Social Studies; Cooking; and Creative Arts. Another component to this unit encourages children in the classroom who are familiar with Indian culture to share their knowledge and insights and to invite their families to enrich the program. Community involvement from Indian stores and restaurants also can be solicited. Contains 10 references. (EH)
