Global Book Bags are learning resources for students to
take home to develop global competencies, practice
literacy skills, and engage parents/guardians in learning
activities. Each Global Book Bag consists of an ageappropriate
book, a set of instructions, and any
materials necessary to complete the learning activities
described in the instructions. These book bags were
designed for elementary grade students to take home for
4-5 days and share with an older family member but can
be adapted for instructional activities in the classroom.
