Purpose:

■ To help children understand their differences are what makes them special and unique.


Description:

During this talk, we ask the children to explore how they are different from others. We discuss

how our differences help define who we are.  Using a metaphor of a treasure hunt, we encourage

the children to discover what makes them unique and extraordinary.  We stress how important it

is to celebrate and be proud of our differences. We are all magnificent treasures that sparkle in

our own way.  And, we need to appreciate each other for what makes us special and different.


Outcomes:

■ Children learn that their unique qualities and features are what makes them a "one-of-a-kind."

■ Children learn that everyone is different and to accept and value others for their unique

characteristics.

■ Children are motivated to explore their differences. This process can be fun and even

reaffirming.

■ Children learn to be proud of who they are and also to support other children’s differences.




Differences— "Each child is a magnificent work of art.

By celebrating their  differences, children gain the freedom to

embrace one another for who they truly are."


DIFFERENT— Unlike, not the same as, distinct, unusual, special

Differences

Celebrating what makes you different makes you special
