||Child, Family and Community
||GLOBAL CONNECTION Project
||Prior to watching the video titled BABIES, students will be required to write assumptions they have about child rearing practices in Namibia, Mongolia, Japan and the USA. They will also locate these countries on the world map. Watch the one hour fifteen minute minute video and individually write down details of their observations regarding child rearing in the four different countries. As a culminating activity, the students will work on groups of fours comparing what their assumptions were and doing a detailed analysis of the video. They will then perform a presentation with a display/showcase of their findings.
The topics to discuss may include, but not limited to the following: birth, Play environments, food, role of parents and siblings, hygiene, opportunities for learning, Child development etc.
