The Colors of US!

The Colors of US!
One of the first classroom guidance lessons I did as a long-term substitute counselor was about diversity.

I read the book The Colors of Us by Karen Katz to first grade. We talked about how no one is black, white, yellow, or red. We are all a beautiful color.

I had the students trace their hand and mix crayon colors together until they found their color. I also had them write something unique about themselves.

Students enjoyed finding their own unique color and making their hands. Here is a picture of the hands students created.

What activities do you facilitate about diversity?
