Be Yourself – Welcome Differences – Grades 3-5 Module

Students explore equity and inclusion by learning to appreciate the differences in others while accepting their own unique qualities. Diversity is applauded.

This lesson has two dimensions: celebrating what makes us different, and celebrating what makes others different. The more we accept ourselves for who we are, the more we will be free to be ourselves — and the more others will feel free to be themselves.
