Kindergarten curriculum often does not include diversity awareness. Diversity awareness involves learning about the different aspects that make each person unique such as physical characteristics and cultural traditions. Without diversity content, children are at risk for developing prejudices in the future or feeling excluded by others. Children may become accepting and empathetic to people from diverse cultures and backgrounds when diversity awareness is integrated in their learning. To address the lack of education on diversity, I have created a 3-day lesson for Kindergarteners at Jesse G. Sanchez Elementary School in Salinas, California.
