Kids in Korea: Comparing Students from Different Cultures.
Fitzhugh, William P.
In a series of activities, intermediate grade students display data from a questionnaire completed by a selected class of Korean elementary school students. The students complete the same questionnaire. They tally results from both questionnaires and display data in an appropriate form: a graph or a Venn diagram. They compare the responses from the Korean questionnaire with their own questionnaire responses to discover similarities and differences between the two cultures. This lesson is designed for students in grades 3-5, but can also be used with middle school students. The lesson cites National Council for the Social Studies Standards in culture and in individual development and identity; lists educational objectives; lists a time allotment; notes resources needed; details step-by-step procedures to complete the activities; and suggests assessment, extension, and enrichment activities. Appended are the student questionnaire; data display of answers from the Korean student questionnaire; and notes for teachers to accompany questionnaire results. (BT)
