My Culture..


 
Our students had fun learning about their own cultures in Alabama History!  They made "cultural collages" sharing about their family and origins.  This was a fun way to get to know ourselves, each other, and about the melting pot we live in.  We used this to talk about early European settlers bringing their culture with them as they met the Native Americans and their culture.
