Forever Friends is designed for 4-6th graders to learn about Japan, China, India, the Philippines, Korea and Vietnam and their cultures. These countries represent deep-rooted Asian influences.
In today’s global society, it is important for young people to develop global leadership skills by understanding how people live elsewhere in the world. Forever Friends introduces students to the daily lives, cultural arts, customs and philosophies, and environments the people of these countries. The more we understand others, the better able we are to live and work together successfully. As the world becomes smaller, this becomes more important.
We at University of Illinois Extension hope you enjoy teaching Forever Friends to your students. It may open doors to other international activities or experiences.
