Reviewer Comments:

This resource has a link to an excellent website that was created to display the results of an international exchange project between elementary school students in the US and Taiwan. The website is a great example of a valuable activity for students to experience as our world becomes more and more interdependent. Although there is no lesson plan with objectives or detailed procedures, the structure of the project and the content included would give a teacher a lot of useful ideas about how to implement this type of project. The web page also includes a link to the contributor’s website which has many other interesting resources.

Thanks for the comments. This resource really requires no lesson plan. The web site lays out all of the steps as well as the planning and criteria for completion. The project resulted in me taking my classes to Taiwan twice to the International summer camp where the kids stayed with Taiwanese parents, while I was a teacher and organizer for the camp.
