    I teach 2nd grade in a small town. We do not have many different cultures here but it is important to show respect and understanding to others and hopefully increase children's awareness of differences in our world.

    We have done "Christmas Around the World" in which we talk about the different traditions. We have also done "Holidays Around the World" so not to focus on a christian holiday. We have asked parents to send in food from recipes sent home for different countries around the world for our celebration. We collect money usually to give to a needy family rather than doing presents for ourselves.
