  1. Adding a page about Culture

    I think for kids like me learning about different Continets would be helpful if they added a page made for people looking for different cultures on different continents. If they add this it would be an amazing idea!
    SO PLEASE ADD THIS!!!!!!

  4. Introductory Country Videos

    Many of my students are new English Language Readers & Listeners. I am not certain that my students understand the Kids' edition. It would be nice to have a short (<5 minute) video introducing the country as well as some pertinent & popular information. This could be done for the country as a whole as well as by individual sections.

    Thank you.

  5. default language

    I would like the ability to set the default language to other languages and then get a dedicated url for using Culture Grams in this language. We would use this for our Seal of Biliterarcy and foreign language students.

    I would really like to see Deaf culture added to these. Maybe start with American Sign Language and go from there.

  8. Graphic organizers/scavenger hunts/Activity templates.

    Ex: US Maps. Gr 1-5 will choose a state, complete info for each category (Did you know? Motto, etc) in a graphic organizer. Students can then make postcards using the activity template and share them with the class.

    Incorporate the Lesson activities into the CultureGram database. Make the 200+ page PDF with teaching activities into hyperlink related to the specific content/lesson. Also, incorporate more activities that are Distance Learning friendly.

  16. Include more interviews of students of students from the United States.

    Hi CultureGrams,

    My students were studying the interviews of students from around the world. They were creating a poll to compare interviewees favorite sports and subjects in school and their own classroom polls. They were so disappointed when there was not one interview of a student from the United States!

  17. Update the lesson plans.

    Please incorporate virtual tools and update the lesson plans. For example, my county uses pear deck, screencastify, flipgrid and tons of other distance learning tools. The lessons haven't been updated in years.

  18. Animals Edition

    It would be about all animals that live in the while. When you click the Animals Edition button, it would take you to a map. There would then be a exotic animals, insects, birds, warm blood, cold blood, and endangered animals buttons. For example, if you click the endangered animals button, it would take you to all the endagered animals. You click on one of them and then it would show where it is located in the world, the sound it makes, and abotu how many there are left. This would be about the same with the other animals. I…

  19. Search for countries by language

    As a teacher librarian, I promote CultureGrams to the world language teachers at my school. They often want students to do research on countries or people from countries where their target language is spoken. It would be very helpful for students to be able to search by language spoken. I think they would be surprised to see all the countries where French or Spanish is spoken.

  20. Charts & Graphs downloadable in other formats

    I do a lot of teacher trainings on how to use CultureGrams in the classroom. The teachers are very excited about having the ability to have their students create comparison charts and graphs. However, sharing their creations out is problematic. Would it be possible to add a feature so that charts and graphs could be downloadable in formats such as jpeg and png? CultureGrams is a statewide resources for our K-12 students, so I know this feature would be useful for many teachers and students in Iowa. Also, it would be helpful to have curriculum correlation with the Iowa Core…
