Teacher needs help!! Thanks

I am pre-school teacher who wants to administer a social studies lesson plan to my students. I wanted the lesson to incorporate various aspects of my culture - Jamaican - combined with the United states culture... I want to develop students' appreciation for other countries and point out similarities and differences. For a lesson plan, I came up with the following ideas:
Focusing on Houses Around the world
Flags from different countries
Do the above lesson ideas connect with what I want my students to focus on....? Do you have any other lesson plan ideas...?
I agree flags is a good idea. However, I have found that two other things work well too. Kids love dances/games... they enjoy doing things and learning different things to do. Kids also enjoy "foods". Researching and finding a recipe from a different country and maybe even having an "in-class picnic" of foods from that country is really enjoyable.
