I used this resource for our school’s Multi-Cultural Night. There were many tables that featured different countries, manned by teachers. Because my parents are German, they asked me to serve at the German table. These materials were amazing! Amazing visuals, interactive activities and information!

Our annual curriculum is focused on many countries. These packets are my favorite. This isn’t the first one I have used. They are packed with great information. Students love to look at the pictures and learn new information from them. We are grateful!
