Whether you’re learning about the United Kingdom by baking hot cross buns or cooking an authentic Iranian breakfast together, cooking with kids is a fun way to learn about culture and diversity. It’s a great learning activity too! You can try a new food each week, and discover what kids in other countries eat for different meals.

2. Take a Virtual Field Trip

A virtual field trip is a great way to get kids learning about culture and diversity. You can tour a world-class museum, go on a safari, or explore Ancient Egypt. Think of all of the opportunities you have to learn about new cultures without ever having to leave the house!

 

3. Create a World Flag Game
