Friendship

Situation:
There is new student in your class. She has moved from another country. When she enters the room, you notice that she wears different clothing and has an accent. Your teacher wants to throw her a party to welcome her to the community.




Your Mission:
Create a party planning committee and assist your teacher in planning a classroom welcome party.

Questions to Consider:
What country did she come from?
What is her culture?
What are some school guidelines for food at parties? Considerdistrict health initiative.
How can you organize the party by time, day, sign ups for food and games?
Recall the stories we have read about friendships, and how to treat others. What are some ways you can make our new friend feel welcome after the party?
