What Is Culture?
Recognizing characteristics of cultures—the beliefs and ways of life of a group of people—is a key part of elementary social studies curricula. This essential volume helps readers identify unique features in cultures, such as languages, traditions, and celebrations, which highlight the interesting variety of peoples' backgrounds. They'll also identify common characteristics among cultures. Colorful photographs closely support the at-level text while the well-researched information motivates readers to consider and appreciate their own cultural heritage as well as other cultures in their community.
