Our Classroom Family – Teaching Kids About Cultural Diversity

When we think of teaching kids about diversity, we know that it all starts with the classroom dynamic. What teachers model, kids will follow. This post will outline some ways in Teaching Kids About Cultural Diversity and foster a classroom environment of diversity and cultural acceptance in a healthy manner. I’ve also created a fun clip wheel you can use to talk about different countries and cultures.

Plus, a super FUN clipart giveaway at the end of this post to one of my favourite Clip-artists – DJ Inkers (which you’ve probably seen me use repeatedly). 🙂 The giveaway starts on the 30th September, so be sure scroll to the bottom and get as many entries as you can to win this SUPER huge clipart set.

Teaching Kids About Cultural Diversity

Use this super fun clip wheel to talk to kids about cultural diversity! There are 20 countries included on two wheels. I would print them on large A3 paper, laminate them and use them with pegs. See below for instructions on how to use the wheels!

Some ideas on how to foster an inclusive classroom envrinoment:

  • Always begin the week by discussing what the students did on the weekend, talk about traditions their families celebrated, foods they ate etc.
  • Have the kids write in their classroom journals about their favourite way to celebrate holidays.
  • Discuss the meaning of student names.
  • Create crafts of their countries or do research into their home countries.
  • Show and tell (an item that has significant meaning in their country

How to use the ‘Our Classroom Family Clip Wheel:

  • Laminate the two wheels on large A3 paper and cut them out.
  • Label small pegs with children’s names on them.
  • Have the children use the pegs to place them on the country of origin.
  • Encourage the kids to talk about their country and traditions (shown on the wheels).
