During this COVID-19 pandemic, many parents are home with their children and looking for things to do. This is a daily post to give you ideas of fun things to do.

Since we are closed during this time, we are sharing the activity for you to implement in your own home. Enjoy!
Daily Activity for Kids – Explore your Cultural Background Activity
Technology is a great way to bring us closer in the world. Technology helps us to learn and travel to new places without ever leaving our home. Many families have various cultural backgrounds. Today’s activity involves exploring your own cultural background using technology.
Choose a country or countries that represent your cultural background. Search that country online and show your children where that is on a map. You can use the Google Earth app www.google.com/earth/ to show them the country online and how far it is from our country. You can also look up other information about the country to find out what it is like to live there. Look up famous artists that are there, what are popular foods, what the country is famous for, what are temperatures there at this time of year. Look through pictures online, listen to the language they speak, if it is different from ours. This is a great opportunity to share your cultural heritage using technology.
Depending on the age of your child, you could expand this by having them create a story based on what they have found.
This daily kids activity incorporates many learning areas based on our Four Pillars of Learning curriculum including: STEAM (technology) and language and literacy.
