Kites in other lands

American Sign Language - If you are right handed, take your left hand index finger, and point (touching) to the center of your right wrist just below your right palm, with your palm flat (fingers extended to indicate a bigger kite). Your right thumb would normally be about 4-6 inches away from your right cheek, initially. At the same time wiggle your right hand while raising it higher, about 6-10 inches.


Note to teacher: A good map activity would be to cut these kite names out and pin or tape them to the country from which they originated. An alternate activity would be to make miniature kite shapes and write the words on them. The kite shapes could be then placed on the world map.
