I am a 3rd grade teacher. The glitch in our Social Studies curriculum is to teach the concepts comparing/contrasting with other countries. For example, I am teaching about U.S government over the next couple of weeks, so I will be including some comparisons and ideas of governments in other countries. I plan to focus on 3 continents: Asia, Africa and Australia. Does anyone have any cool lesson plans or have any useful websites that will help me in this?? Any information will be helpful. I plan to do Christmas Around The World as well in December. Thank you, thank you, thank you in advance!!!
