The Internet is a Great Tool!

The Internet can be used for many wonderful things. Some people use the internet to...
  • Find a job
  • Go to school, learn new skills
  • Manage their money
  • Check the weather
  • Talk to friends in other parts of the world
  • Shop for bargains
  • Read news from all over the world
  • Share their thoughts
  • Learn about opportunities in their communities
  • And so more MORE!
What do you use the internet for? How does the internet help you? What do you want to do on the internet that you don't do now?

Customs in the United States

Customs are the ways that a culture does things.

Some American customs:

When someone sneezes, you say "Bless you!"  (Sometimes people say "Geshundheit," which is German.)

We shake hands when we meet someone for the first time.

Time is money!  Americans always want to be on time.

No elbows on the table!  Also, many Americans eat with the fork in their right hands.

It is very bad to break a mirror!  Some Americans think you will have seven years of bad luck if you break a mirror.

What are some customs from your country?  Do you have some of the same customs as the United States?  Please click "Comments" to answer.
