The activities depicted and the information provided in this book reflect the program for cultural awareness at The Learning Tree, a preschool located in Dallas, Texas. The material is presented in the hope that it will serve to increase children's acceptance of diversity and pluralism in American society. Six cultures are represented: Asian, black, cowboy, Eskimo, Mexican, and Native American. Guides for activities related to family living, creative art expression, nature and science, language development, music and dance, games and manipulative play, and special events such as festivals and holidays are provided for each of the cultures. A selected bibliography of records, films, and books for children and adults accompanies the material for each culture. A final bibliography of multi-cultural resources is also provided. Many drawings and photographs accompany the descriptions of activities. (Author/RH)Flags The Mexican flag with its symbol of an eagle with a snake in its mouth, fascinates children. Display a ...
