Great Korean Resource

Today I was reminded of a great resource for families with Korean children so I thought I’d share that in a separate post. It’s the Korea Society in New York. If you haven’t been to the society’s Web site, you’ve missed a wealth of information.

The Publications page is my favorite area of the site. On this page you’ll find classroom curriculum about Korea for grades kindergarten through 12th. The curriculum includes lesson plans, worksheets and fun activities about Korea. For example, the elementary lessons include geography, a virtual trip to Korea, cultural customs, and more.

The lessons are provided in PDF files and can be downloaded for free. The Web site has them set up so you can download the entire set of lessons per age group at one time (the elementary one is 87 pages long) or you can pick the “Best of” each series of lessons by going to the folder marked “Best of…” or you can search through them by subject and pick that way. These lessons are great resources to use either at home with your own children or in your child’s class at school.

The Publications page of the site also has Podcasts avaiable for free for those of you using iTunes. The Podcasts range in subject matter from Korean folktales to history to politics.

I know some of you have asked about learning more about Korean history and culture. Well, I think these lessons provide a fun way for your whole family to do just that.
