Switzerland Custom Box
This activity invites students to explore other cultures. While students learn about the impact of Swiss geography on the transportation, the culture, the social relationships, and the economy of Switzerland, they discover the many ways in which outside forces affect a given culture. Students then select another world country and examine its relationship to America. Through the assignment, students develop an appreciation for the similarities and unique differences among cultures. Students can then apply this lesson to the classroom, where culturally students contribute their unique talents and beliefs to a unified learning community.
