Overview

Everywhere across the United States, children from other countries are joining American classrooms. How can their classmates prepare? Learning about the culture, geography, and history of a new student's native country can help smooth the transition. Greeting the student with a few words in his or her language, making a traditional craft, and whipping up a well-known dish are all sure to help the child feel welcome. In this vibrant and colorful series, students and teachers can find out how to Meet a New Student—and maybe make a new friend. A new student from Malaysia is joining Lucy's third-grade class and everyone is curious. They want to know everything about Malaysia! Read about this country in Southeast Asia, with its long history of spice traders, sultans, and pirates. Its capital city of Kuala Lumpur, which began as a tin mining town, is now a modern city with the tallest skyscrapers in the world. Find out about the three main cultures of Malaysia: the Bumiputra, whose ancestors lived on the land that became Malaysia; the Chinese Malaysians; and the Indian Malaysians, who practice Hinduism. Then join Lucy and her class in preparing a traditional Malaysian dish of sticky rice with mango as they welcome a New Student form Malaysia. Selamat datang!
