This Xpeditions lesson asks students to think about how cultural customs differ throughout the world. Students research a foreign culture's customs and write stories pretending they are on vacation with a friend from the country they have researched. They pretend to travel to a new country that neither person is familiar with, and describe each person's reactions to the new culture. They consider how these reactions differ based on each person's own cultural customs and habits.
