Great interactive stories to help teach global awareness.
I loved that the students were able to hear the stories told by children themselves. The teacher's guides were very helpful, and I also appreciated the photos accompanying the stories. My students really liked the counting and word portion.
How I Use It
I used this as part of a culture unit with my students. They had studied specific cultures, created projects, listened to presenters all before using this app. One Globe Kids allowed them to compare and contrast their lives with the lives of the children telling their stories. These stories were also an avenue to talk about specific issues others face in different communities (ie. transportation, water, electricity).
