Diversity Lesson Plan
As Martin Luther King, Jr. Day approaches, our nation will honor King's legacy of compassion and tolerance for people of all races and creeds. This is an important time for people of all ages, kindergarteners included.
Here's an activity that harkens back to that old lesson that's been around for ages: “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” It’s never too early to teach children empathy, tolerance, and compassion. Help your child recognize that all of us—all ages, all sizes, all races—are more alike than we are different, especially on the inside.
What You Need:
