About the Around The World category:
School Costumes that portray different Countries and Cultures from around the World, such as Spanish, Asian, and German Costumes, help pave the way for the Students in your School to learn about all aspects of Diversity, from Language to Race to Gender.
Throughout their lives, both inside and outside of the Classroom, Children will encounter all kinds of people who are different from themselves in a variety of ways. By having the chance in Preschool, Kindergarten, or early Elementary School to Dress Up in Multicultural Costumes, they will begin to be exposed in a positive way to some of that diversity, preparing them to treat difference with Tolerance and Respect. Gaining exposure to different Cultural practices can also help Kids consider their own and develop a sense of Identity and Self Esteem.
At the Middle School and High School levels, language classes as well as Lessons about Egyptian hieroglyphs, Math as practiced by ancient Mayans, and Music, Art, and Literature across borders can be bolstered by the use of School Costumes. Discussions and Student Presentations about Globalization, Racism, Human Rights, and Gender Identity can also find use for International Costumes.
We live in a world that is colored by the uniqueness of the people who inhabit it. International Studies and other Courses in Languages and Culture can be made equally as colorful by the implementation of Costumes in Class. As a Teacher, you have the power to help each and every Student gain an appreciation for Learning as well as respect for the world and people around them.
