I have downloaded all four of your Unity PowerPoints, and showed them to my very diverse grade 5 and 6 students (approximately 150 students). They were extremely receptive and fully engaged in discussion. They got it completely, and were excited to be validated so fully. Thank you for your service to teachers and students, and your advocacy for the rights of all people.

This colorful slide show introduces the idea that people
are alike and different in many ways, but there is only one human race, and we share one planet - our common home. Available in Russian and Spanish (below).
Some PowerPoints are available in other languages.
Each PowerPoint must be downloaded separately.
PowerPoint Viewer is available free from Microsoft.
Teachers, parents, counselors, scoutmasters, youth leaders and home schoolers!
This slide show compares the members of our human family to the flowers of a garden, each with its own special beauty. It also considers the value of diversity, the need for unity, and the difference between unity and sameness.
This program takes a close look at the variation in human skin colors, the problems with labeling people by color, how skin color is inherited from our parents, and the role of melanin in protecting us from the sun.
This colorful slide show reviews concepts from the first three programs: on Unity, Diversity, and The Colors We Are. It also poses discussion questions to encourage deeper thinking.
This show makes it easy to talk with children and others about prejudice. Topics include a simple definition of prejudice with concrete examples, ways to overcome prejudice and create unity, and discussion questions to encourage deeper thinking.
"Brilliant and lotsa fun! You may have designed it for kids but adults would benefit too!"
