Essential Question: 

There are many ways that citizens of the United States are ENRICHED by learning about the heritage of other countries, especially the "countries of origin" that make up the different relatives and ancestries of our current population. The keys to acceptance of others and "getting along",  is often as simple as learning  about their lives, and teaching them about ours.
