Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

How do you introduce the topic of slavery to your youngest learners? The Sneetches, by Dr. Suess, is a great introduction to the idea of being different. Read the story to your class, and discuss desegregation in public buildings. This lesson plan ends by suggesting different ways to celebrate diversity, but the discussion on desegregation isn't outlined fully. You will want to think carefully about how you'll present this idea to the class.
