Learning about diversity and culture can be a great benefit for students. This lesson outlines games teachers can use to teach students about cultural mapping.

Cultural Mapping

Cultural mapping is a valuable tool that students can use to explore their own cultures and other cultures. Cultural mapping typically involves examining and organizing the unique aspects and elements of a culture in order to better understand that culture. It also serves as way to encourage understanding and cooperation between diverse and distinct cultures.

The following games can supplement and reinforce the knowledge your students have already gained from studying the intricacies of cultural mapping.

Community Culture

One of the goals of cultural mapping is to develop plans for community involvement. In order to develop these plans, the cultural assets of a community must first be mapped. This activity requires teams to map the culture of their communities and then provide the rest of the class with a visual representation of that culture.
