This paper analyzes the importance of having multicultural education being implemented in elementary schools. The participants for the Capstone Project included twenty two first-grade students in a public elementary school located in California’ Central Coast. In this project the participants go to hear a picture book being read to them that focused on the understanding of multiculturalism what multiculturalism is and how it can be seen. The participants go to hear about two different cultures from two different location from the world and the focus point of their diversity. The participants go to see this through the art interpretation that the book author showed in the book The participants then go to create their own piece of artwork about their own world that showed their diversity. In this project you are able to discover that multicultural education can be implemented and included in a classroom environment in a strategic way that can create engagement and interest in the participants. This Capstone Project connects to my Liberal Studies career path by creating a diverse classroom environment that makes everyone included despite everyone’s differences in my future career.
