Stories about Difference

This module is all about people being included and people being left out.  It focuses on stories, and what they can teach us about making sure everyone belongs.  This module has three activities.

  1. The Bat Story
    Do you know what it feels like to be excluded?  In this activity you will explore a story about Bat and how he was treated by the other animals.
  2. Stories about Discrimination
    Sometimes people are treated differently because of how they look or sound, or because of what they believe.  In this activity you will hear some stories from people who have been excluded.
  3. A Day at the Beach
    Do you like reading stories about people like you?  In this activity you will read and then change a story so that lots of people can enjoy it.
