This set was created to supplement a first grade interdisciplinary museum unit entitled "Around the World." In this unit students take a virtual trip around the world, visiting a different continent each week. Use this set with students to compare, contrast, and evaluate works of art from around the world. Invite students to showcase their learning by creating a classroom museum of student created exhibits based on the objects presented in this set.

Unit Essential Questions:

  • How can we use objects and primary sources to explore where we live and the world around us?
  • How are cultures alike and different?
  • How can we use our 5 senses to explore the world around us?

At the end of this unit and through the use of this art set students will understand that:

  • the world is made up of regions that are very different from each other in terms of climate, geography, and culture.
  •  primary sources and objects help us to explore the world around us.

Students will be able to:

  • compare and contrast different cultures
