    I did this unit with my year 1's last year. I thought we could do it in a term in time for the Olympics but it took us the whole year. The kids had a ball and learnt so much. We started off with a passport and they put a ticket to each country in it. They had to be able to find the country on a world map. We did art from each country. Japanese outfit using paper napkins. We cooked a dish from each country eg made our own pasta and sauce for Italy. Listened to music from the countries. Played children's games from that. Literature was important. They liked facts as well. On the computer we did the jigsaws on one of the sites of famous buildings or flowers. We looked at how the weather was different. The flag they had. I could have just kept going it was fantastic.
