Louisiana Culture









We have been studying "culture" this week in Social Studies. I wrote down ten different areas that a state can possess different cultural characteristics. We studied them as they pertained to Louisiana and branched out to other states for comparisons. We discussed how, even in one state, many different cultures can be found. This was easy for them to see when we compared North Louisiana to South Louisiana.
Today, I gave them each a poster board and let them make "Louisiana Culture" posters. They divided their pictures and objects into the different categories...food, music, festivals, recreation, emblems, etc. We all had a good time doing it, and the posters turned out great!
