These are some ways I came up with to try to teach diversity in our school as a wonderful thing.... A celebration!
Mrs. Johnson's 2nd grade class
Mrs. May's 3rd grade
Ashlynn & Abbey
2nd & 3rd grade
I made a handout to help inspire students to use a basic circle to begin an assortment of diverse faces...
Mrs. Zarella's kinder class working...
Alternative: use crazy crayon colors to give a more fun celebratory feeling!
Mrs. Meleski's 3rd grade
Mrs. Jamison's 2nd grade
Mrs. Fortner's 2nd grade class
Mrs. Craig's 3rd grade class

In art there is so many choices of supplies, colors, shades, tints, designs & lines that could be used to create. It's this diversity that keeps art...
Or life... fUN!

So, I chose for my little art students to use colored pencils as a subject for displaying diversity of size, colors & lines.
Cut a rainbow of paper into 1.5 inch strips (including brown)...
Add highlights down the center of each pencil with a white crayon.
Glue the colored pencils down in rainbow order...
Changing heights and adding faces makes them even more diverse!
