When you teach ESL students, you often have students from many different countries all around the world. These students often interact with other students from around the world. It is very beneficial therefore for them to be able to explain where they are from and where their friends are from. Country names do not stay the same from one language to another, so this heritage unit is always one of the first weeks of our school year.
