Field Note - Kids Lives


Always eager to discover how children around the world experience life, some travelers may have the opportunity to conduct interviews with young individuals to gain insights into their daily lives. These interviews may involve children of colleagues, professors, or a traveler's host family. 

The resulting interview-based article offers students a vivid portrayal of a day in the life of a child,. As students engage with these stories, they can make global-to-local connections and develop positive attitudes and beliefs about foreign peoples and cultures.

Your traveler will ask the following questions:

What is your full name?
Where do you live? What is your house like?
What is your family like?
How do you get around?
What types of clothing do you like to wear?
What do you like to do in your free time?
What language(s) do you speak? How do you say "Hello" in your language?
Do you have pets?
Have you traveled? Where have you traveled to?
What do you do for work?
Is there anything else you would like to say to students in the United States?
