2. Overview


In this unit, students will digitally “travel” around the world and learn what life is like in someone else’s shoes. Along the way, they will create action plans for helping others and becoming outstanding global citizens. The teacher will guide students through a study of their home country first, then students will break up into smaller groups and choose a country to study with coaching from the teacher. Finally, students will research a country on their own.

As students learn about a country, they will log information in their “passports,” create digital scrapbooks, travel blogs, and action plans for helping their global community. Findings will be presented in “TED” style talks, where students will compare and contrast their lifestyles with that of a child in their country of study, then present their ideas for a call-to-action.
