Multicultural themed holiday program #1

 1. Send out “white cardstock” to parents and ask them to use it to create a “poster” representing  their family culture and heritage. 

They could include the flag, recipes, pictures of food, child/family picture in their ethnic traditional clothes, famous landmarks from their country of origin etc.

These posters can be displayed in the school hallway during the month of December.

This can be a good family project for them to do together and enjoy !!

Here’s a good size poster priced reasonably that could be used for this project: https://www.amazon.com/School-Smart-1485742-Railroad-Thickness/dp/B00PEFCUKO/ref=sr_1_2?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1512267267&sr=1-2&keywords=22+x+28+poster+board
