Rooster’s Off to See the World, by Eric Carle.
One fine morning, a rooster sets off to see the world. Soon he's
joined by two cats, then three frogs, then four turtles, then five
fish. But one group by one, his new friends decide to head home,
leaving the rooster alone again -- and ready to return to his own
comfortable home as well. Bold, colorful collage illustrations, a
beguiling story, and a simple introduction to number sets,
addition, and subtraction combine to make Rooster's Off to See
the World a delight for Eric Carle's many young fans.
Morning Circle:
Prepare for this unit ahead of time by decorating your classroom with festive items from
around the world.  Create "multicultural corners" in which each section represents a different
land.  For example, you might have a "
Caribbean Corner," a "Mexican Corner," an "Asian
Corner," and an "African Corner."  Make each area colorful and inviting, and as immersive as
possible.  Include music in each section reflecting the region's style, toys and other items
typical of the region, and some snacks representative of the area (you might wish to
incorporate the foods with a specific snack or meal time.)  Ask around at local travel agencies
for travel posters.  They are usually happy to provide teachers with large posters from various
countries.  These are an excellent way to add to the colorful and festive feel of your
multicultural unit's room.

Snack Time: A Taste of Everything
Incorporate the tastes of many different countries into your
snack time.  You might wish to make a game out of it,
"flying" to various lands to sample their exotic flavors.  Get in
your airplanes and fly to faraway China, for example, and
sample rice cakes or fortune cookies.  Board the train to
Mexico and sample some tortillas and salsa.  Hop onto a giant
cruise ship and sail to Africa, and sample plantains or cassava.
 If you have a Jamaican or Caribbean area, get in your
speedboat and race to taste some yummy empanadas
Paper Flower Making Center
Let children create beautiful tissue paper flowers to take
home as a "souvenir."  Use varied colors of tissue paper
and colorful pipe cleaners to create the flowers.  
(
tutorial).  Be sure to play some mariachi music to set the
right mood!
African Object Exploration
Set out some rhythm instruments, drums, faux animal
skins and furs, safari animals, tall grasses, and a scattering
of colorful beads and beading string to make jewelry.  
Play some recordings of safari animals in the background.
 Enjoy the drama and beauty of the Savannah!
Caribbean Sea
Have a sand and water table, some beach music, and let
the children's imaginations take them to the islands!
Bible Verse Bracelets:
Luke 9:6

"They preached the good news
and healed people everywhere."
Bible Song:
“Jesus Loves the Little
Children, All the
Children of the World,”
Read: Rooster’s Off to See the World, by Eric Carle.
There are lots of plans to be made when you go on a trip.  
Where will you stay?  What will you eat?  Wear?  Do?  
Rooster’s traveling companions get frustrated and leave
when they realize Rooster hasn’t planned his trip very well,
or provided for all their needs.  How would traveling
through life with Jesus be?  No matter where we go or what
we do in this life, we can rest assured that as long as we’re
traveling with Jesus, he has planned the whole trip!
Handwriting Practice:  H is for Hello
This is an optional handwriting worksheet for children
who are ready to practice tracing the letters of the
alphabet.
H is for Hello, how are you? and  Hola!  
Children can color the letter H, and trace the words.  
There is also a picture of a boxcar for children to
color.
Making a Passport
(stamp is made from craft foam and wood block: tutorial here)
Let the children create a passport to have stamped at each of the lands they visit.  
Make a little book out of construction paper.  Let the children decorate it with old
stamps, stickers, photos from magazines, drawings of maps, etc.  Stamp it when they
arrive in each new area.  Write the word for "hello" in each region's language if you
like.  Decorate each area with designs that represent each region.  The children can
use it to show their parents or caregivers where they "traveled" to during the day.
Passport Minibook & Stickers
This is a printable minibook you can make ahead of
time for children. (minibook folding instructions
here)  Print up a set of stickers on sticker paper or
combine this with the stamp activity above.

Classroom Field Trip
Attend a multicultural activity in your city.  Look around, there are opportunities
everywhere!  Go to a Russian ballet, an ethnic art event at a gallery, a museum featuring
an Egyptian exhibit, or go to an authentic foreign restaurant.  If opportunities like this are
hard to find in your area, bring some foreign flare into your classroom.  Ask if any of the
children have a grandparent or family member who used to live in another country.  Have
them come in and bring some cultural items with them to share.  Hire a Latin dance
instructor to come in and teach Mambo lessons.  Find a local artist to come in and do
Chinese watercolor painting.  Be creative and have tons of fun with this multicultural
lesson!!
Begin your lesson by showing the children
some nice photos of people in various
cultures.  Talk with the children for a
moment about their travels.  Have any of
them traveled far away from home?  To
other countries?  Discuss their trips to other
parts of their own country as well.  What did
they see there? Hear? Taste? Smell? Do?

Tell children that today we will be learning
about people who live in different parts of
the world.  Emphasize that children and
their parents all over the world have feelings
and experiences just like they do, even
though they may look different and do
different things.  
Introduce the letter "H."  Say the word, "Hello."  Repeat
"hello" with the children.  Ask if anyone knows the name of
the letter that begins "hello."  Show the word "hello."  Point
at and say "h."  Ask if any of the children know the Spanish
word for "hello."  Help the children say "Hola."  Show the
word "hola" and point out and say the "H,"  Say the following
"H" greetings:  "How do you do?"  "How's it goin'?"  "How
are you?"  "How ya doin'?" "Howdy!" "Hey there!"  (Keep
going as long as you can think "Hi" phrases up!)
