How many languages did he or she speak? What kinds of stories did they tell about where they are from? 4. (5-7 minutes) Ask: Based on the stand up sit down activity, is it fair to assume that there is no one else on this planet who has the same history has as you do? Is it fair to assume that there is no one else on this planet who is quite like you? Why or why not? Ask: Who engages with people online? Did you know that you are a part of a global culture?
