It is not uncommon for people to travel to different countries all around the world. Depending on where you travel, the language, the food, and the culture may be far different from what you are used to. Often, the climate has a strong influence on customs, food and culture. Look at the climate differences throughout the world. What causes the seasons and how do they vary from one region of the world to another?

For the final assessment, you will be creating an Information Cube. As you use the resources on Slide 2, organize the information on this Planning Sheet.Planning Sheet. Use these Spanish resources to add Spanish to your planning sheet. Food Clothing WeatherSports!

You will create an Information Cube about your country. When you go to the site, choose “create a cube”.Information Cube Use the information you gathered on your Planning Sheet to complete the cube. When your cube is complete, save it and print it and fold it together. Share your cube with someone visiting a different country. As you share, give more details about each side of your cube and use some of the Spanish vocabulary you have been practicing!

Grade 4 Social Studies and Spanish BCPS CurriculumBCPS Curriculum / Maryland State Curriculum Social Studies Gr 4Maryland State Curriculum How does where you live (travel) affect your choice of clothing and leisure activities? How does weather vary based on geographic location? Common Core State Standards Reading: 1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. Writing: 7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Standard 3.0 Geography Students will use geographic concepts and processes to examine the role of culture, technology, and the environment in the location and distribution of human activities and spatial connections throughout time. Standards for the 21 st Century Learner Standards for the 21 st Century Learner 1.1.6 Read, view, and listen for information presented in any format (e.g. textual, visual, media, digital) in order to make inferences and gather meaning. 2.1.3 Use strategies to draw conclusions from information and apply knowledge to curricular areas, real- world situations, and further investigations. ISTE NETS - National Educational Technology Standards for Students 3. Research and Information Fluency: Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information. b. Locate, organize, analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and ethically use information from a variety of sources and media. 4. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making: Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources. c. Collect and analyze data to identify solutions and/or make informed decisions. Time Frame: 1-2 days Differentiation strategies for this lesson: Direct students to use learning tools included in our BCPS- licensed databases, such as: audio read-aloud, labeled reading levels/Lexiles, and embedded dictionaries. Allow students to work in partners Learning Styles addressed in this lesson: Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, Field Independent Notes to the teacher: Collaborate with your school library media specialist to implement this lesson. Students will need to print the Planning Sheet and their finished Cube.Planning Sheet It would be helpful to have headphones for students as they explore the Spanish interactive sites.
