Globetrotting with Cinderella: Literature, Geography and Culture Studies


"My kids loved this mix of geography, culture and literature.  And the comparisons were really helpful to see how each culture tells their own story."

In this comprehensive and multisensory 174 page unit study, your children will explore much more than fairy tales and Cinderella stories! This unit study takes your children on a tour of 6 distinct global cultures, looking at history, music, art, food, and scientific contributions. Children will explore the literary genre of fairy tales while comparing the six Cinderella stories across the cultures. While on their journey, children will also explore chromatics and the use of color by the French Impressionists, the use of natural resources across cultures, the active volcano region of Russia, the history of kites in China, the fermentation process in the popular Korean dish kimchi, Egyptian math and pyramid building, culinary arts, literary devices, public speaking, listening skills, and so much more! 

Nations studied:  France, Micmac Nation, Russia, China, Egypt and Korea

All 82 activities in this unit study are laid out in an easy to follow format with an active and updated web link.  Click on the link and the best resources on the World Wide Web appear for your children.  But this unit study is not just a collection of web sites to read!  It is much more than that!  The links bring the world to your children by providing streaming videos, interactive web sites, educational games, audio files, hands-on activities, experiments, crafts, and more.  At Intellego Unit Studies, we believe in the varied learning styles and multiple intelligences of every child.  That's why all of our unit studies include reading and writing activities, videos, art, music, comparisons, drawing and painting, discussions, hands-on activities, experiments, art projects, full-color high resolution graphics, printable activity pages, and more!

There is a huge amount of material in this book with links to many webpages for the differing versions of the Cinderella story and for other activities linking the story and the culture it comes from. It's worth setting up a journal (either wi [...]

Surprisingly in depth and attention grabbing. Although my daughter does not like the vocabulary, she asks to do Intellego every day because there is always a hands on project she wants to do. However, I am even more impressed with their customer servic [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
