Similarities and Differences Between Cultures

Here is a lesson allowing students to create virtual “cards” that reflect their personal preferences. After making these cards they are able to browse through cards made by other students from around the world. They are able to share their cards by leaving them with students from any country. Part of the lesson plan covers class discussion as to why cards from different parts of the world might be similar and different from the cards they made.
