Cultured Owl focuses on Growing Global CitizensTM through its educational Country Kits. Our products are developed based on the National Council for the Social Studies' (NCSS) National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies: A Framework for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment. Country Kits are designed for the elementary aged student and are thus most suitable for children ages 6-9. The NCSS thematic strands explored through Country Kits include the following:
In addition, Cultured Owl develops children's global citizenship skills. The development of cultural sensitivity and intercultural competence will help prepare today's children for success in our increasingly globalized society. By exploring the world's diversity through an engaging product, Country Kits lay the foundation for an interest in lifelong learning.
