Southeast Asia

Step 1Class discussion with students

Human rights are defined as moral principles or norms to which a person is inherently entitled. In many countries of the world, human rights are protected by laws that keep people safe regardless of their nation, location, language, religion, ethnic origin, or any other status. Many or our human rights are protected by the Constitution that was fought for by our forefathers. Amnesty International is a non-profit organization that fights for the human rights of people around the world. Check out the Amnesty International website and use the “our work” tab to find human rights issues in Southeast Asia, and around the world.

    Using a blank map of Central Asia and Oceania, students will label eight countries, four landforms and three bodies of water. Students will create a list of 10 different facts about the region at the bottom of their page.

Step 3Concluding discussion with students

Food can be a powerful expression of one's culture and traditions. Break your students into several groups so that your class is equally divided. Assign each group a country in Southeast Asia that they will create a menu for. Menus will include the name, picture, and description of four or five traditional dishes from their country. Students will present their menu to the class and discuss the foods' cultural significance. If possible, encourage your students to cook a sample food item for the class to test.
