UCPS has initiated Globalization Awareness. Some second grade classes at WDES participated by each child dressing a paper doll in it's native costume according to a chosen country. Research on the internet was used to provide information on native dress, culture, and language.
The paper dolls border an interactive board to be used as a center with world maps, coins, flags, books, and puzzles for the students to explore world-wide cultures and to make connections to their own lives.
