Don’t under-estimate learning about other cultures in the early years!
Cultural awareness and learning about the diverse world we live not only:
- fosters tolerance, and,
- improves general knowledge
but also, has been shown to:
- promote problem-solving skills
This is because children learn that there are several ways to do things!
Talk about other cultures via cooking! I cook and bake with my kids a lot and we love exploring French recipes – I have loads to share with you! Here is a simple fun biscuit recipe with a very quirky name! The recipe is in French and English. Bon appétit!
Use the recipe as a basis to discuss animals in French. Here is a link to a version of “Old MacDonald” in French!
There are also lots of animal songs in our Best of Mini French Album which you can dowload now!
