Global competency is important. Here is a lesson plan used by an elementary teacher for Chinese New Year. I love it because it has simple ingredients. It is coming up in 2 weeks and is probably the most important celebration in China. Students should know what it is.
Cara Whitehad shares how she uses Glogster to teach on her "tech Tuesday" lessons. She has them post on their edmodo site. Glogster is a great tool that I've used in my classroom. The students love it.
