Essential Questions Which Will Be Answered What are the similarities and differences among children around the world? How can we connect with each other through our commonalities? How does your geography where you live impact your topic?
1. Do some research on a week in the life of children in your school around these topics: School time Languages & Clothing Housing & Transportation Leisure time Holidays & Celebration Environment
2. Collect multimedia and share with team members Multimedia choices: video, audio, slideshow, cartoons, etc. Share multimedia online via team wiki pages Discuss differences and similarities between multimedia
3. Complete a final project demonstrating your information to the rest of the group. Each classroom will be responsible to assemble a number of team projects Upload finished projects to the wiki View all the group projects and compare and contrast the results.
Do you think the final project should be individual or group?
