Integrating Heritage Week

My school recently finished up our Heritage Week where students learn about the countries they and their classmates come from.  In order to integrate this into my “regular” lessons, my students had a special packet for both vocabulary and math.  I’m offering both up free to anyone who wants them, so feel free to grab one of the other – or both, to use in your classroom.

Study countries of the world with this free vocabulary packet from Raki's Rad Resources. Perfect for English Language Learners.Country Vocabulary Packet – Since most of my students are English Language Learners, I find it important to do weekly vocabulary packets.  For Heritage Week, we focused on how to say various countries around the world, as well as to describe ourselves and others.  (ie. I am from the United States of America.  I am American.  He is from Spain.  He is Spanish. etc.)

Gather information and create graphs with this free digital download packet from Raki's Rad Resources.School Survey Graphing Packet – To cover our math standards of creating tally charts, frequency charts, bar graphs and picto-graphs, we completed this school survey packet.  The students asked the students in their class and others 4 questions:  What country are you from?  What language(s) do you speak?  How many kids are in your family?  What month is your birthday in?.  Then, they used the data they gathered to construct graphs accordingly.


I have a few more resources that we used during this week, but they are not quite ready to be “released”.  I promise another post within a week or two to give you more details!


Does your school have a heritage week?
