Why Lesson Planet?
Ethnic diversity is the focus of the political science lesson presented here. In it, pupils discuss the variety of ethnicities they see at their own school. They share their knowledge, or personal experiences of the way that people of different cultures celebrate. As a culminating activity, everyone creates a piece of writing that describes the aspects of their identity that makes them special and different from everyone else. The pieces of writing are word processed and displayed on a bulletin board. This would be a great activity to do before Back-to-School Night.
