CD-SS2 – The child will demonstrate an understanding of his/her community and an emerging awareness of others’ cultures and ethnicity.
CD-SS2.4c Recognizes similarities and differences between own culture and that of others. 
WSO: Identifies similarities and differences in personal and family characteristics.
 Activities: Venn Holidays.  Now is a great time as we're learning about Christmas. Advent, Saint Nicholas Day, Kwanzaa, and Hannukah.  Using a Venn diagram, students can dictate how the various cultural holidays relate and differ from one another.

If I Were...  This is a role playing game that students can do with multicultural dress up clothes.  They can dress in the outfits and pretend what it is like to be of that culture.

Books: Tikki Tikki Tembo
Now and Then by Rozanne Lanzcack Williams (helps to show comparing between past and present life cultures)
