In order to carry out this activity, the students worked in groups. Each group received a sample of cultural icebergs on which were written characteristics visible at first glance for a culture as well as the subtle characteristics that appear after we get to know more representatives of that culture. The students’ task was to write down characteristics of a representative of a certain culture and at the end of the activity each group presented while other students added or posed questions related to the presentation.

The objectives of the activity are: to overcome stereotypes and prejudices, to support constructive communication and cooperation among students from two different ethnic groups, as well as to support self-organization of students during the implementation of joint activities.
