I was thrilled when the wonderful group of moms from Worldwide Culture Swap grouped together individual families for a one-on-one culture swap exchange.
The family from Scotland sent us the following:
- Bag – This is the Union Jack – the flag of the United Kingdom (UK)
- Kings and Queens wall chart (history)
- Traveler’s map / National Geographic (geography)
- UK map / Facts and figures (geography)
- Cut outs from newspapers
- Advertising holidays in London
- Weather forecast (maths)
- Advert for Tartan Tales (music)
- Picture of cartoon character Oor Wullie (language)
- Cooking savoury fudge (food)
- Food label (food, maths)
- Train tickets (orange and green)
- Bus ticket (white)
- Stamps (geography)
- Postcards (history, geography, food)
- Stamp, post box (history)
- Images of Scotland
- Pictures of Edinburgh
- Coins (maths)
- Bookmark, magazine (language)
We’ve participated in the past, and we have learned so much from the families who have carefully prepared, and put together the swap packages from their countries (read about it here).
This was a one-on-one culture swap package. We signed up for a 4 family swap package, and we’re group 208 swapping cultural packages with Poland, Sweden, Canada, and New Jersey.
We’ll be anxiously waiting for our mailman and hoping to receive a culture swap package soon. Until our next swap!
How do you teach your children about other cultures, and countries? Have you participated in culture swap exchanges?
