Imagine you could put on someone else’s comfortable shoes. What would you see if you were walking in an unfamiliar place?
Open a discussion of shoe types typical to your student population. Ask students for their preferences in shoe wear, as well as why we wear different types of shoes in different seasons of the year. Inform students that they will be investigating shoes worn in other cultures/countries. After researching the kinds of shoes worn in a selected country, students will create a unique display of their learning in the form of model shoes.
Sculpt the shoe. Scrunch newspaper into a shoe shape. Use masking tape to hold the paper armature in place. Roll neon Crayola Model Magic® into a flat sheet with a Crayola Marker. Drape the modeling compound over the newspaper to shape it into footwear. Roll coils in contrasting colors. Attach them to the shoe for the sole, laces, or straps. Use a fingernail or a marker cap to impress details such as stitching or tread. Air-dry the shoe overnight.
Make local cutouts. On construction paper, draw and color what a traveler would see in the country. In Switzerland, there are the Alps, brown Swiss cattle, cheese, skis, and timepieces. Cut out the drawings with Crayola Scissors, leaving a small tab at the bottom of each one to attach it to the poster.
Show the country. Trace the country’s name and land mass on posterboard. Fill in its flag with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils. Erase areas as needed. For example, Switzerland’s flag has a white cross in a field of red. Cut slits in posterboard to attach the cutouts. Slide tabs through the slits and fold up. Attach the shoe and cutouts with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry the display before it is presented to the class.
