QUIZ: 10 Fun Trivia Facts to Celebrate Culture and Diversity
The world is big. Very big. It is full of different people, places, and things. All of these aspects differentiate us from one another, and, ultimately, give us our own identity. That’s why it’s important to not only acknowledge these differences, but celebrate the many cultures from around the world when given the opportunity. Just being around people from other cultures, at work or at school, gives us the opportunity to learn and explore new ideas and customs. And that opens up new ways of thinking. For this reason, and many others, it is so important for students to have a deeper global awareness and understanding of other cultures.
To celebrate culture and diversity near and far, both literally in distance and figuratively in our hearts, we want to test your knowledge with these ten fun culture questions. Do you have your own unique culture fun fact? Leave a comment telling us about it.
