Respect, understanding, cooperation, and goodness grow where people feel familiar and comfortable. When we recognize these same characteristics in others, we build connections. Our homes, neighborhoods, and communities are the familiar and comfortable spaces. Understanding the world's global village connects us to others in a positive way.
Begin by discussing the homes, neighborhoods, and communities surrounding you. Students can draw a map of their walk to school or the park, including homes along the way. Houses, just like people, come in many different shapes and sizes. As a special project, provide material for kids to design their own unique house.
Visit The Wonderment's Global Village Path. Each participant has contributed a unique piece of a village. These creative homes come from all over the world and build a village we make globally as we recognize the important contribution each person makes!
