This was the topic that I taught yesterday in Second Steps in Yoda's Classroom. Second Steps is a program to help with learning social/ emotional behaviors.http://www.cfchildren.org/programs/ssp/overview
The 3 units are Empathy,Impulse Control and Anger management. So we were talking about accepting differences- that all people are a little different that different does not equal bad, just different. We have different color eyes, hair tall, short,we need to accept people for who they are and not how they appear. I use chocolate bars to talk about it- they are all wrapped differently, yet on the inside they are all still chocolate no matter what the wrapper is like. The timing is perfect with Martin Luther Kings Birthday, Holiday and the Inauguration on Tuesday.
