Your students will learn about each other’s unique and special qualities and start off the year celebrating diversity after creating this bulletin board project. The activity encourages students to think about their own unique interests, personalities, likes, families, nationalities, etc. as they design a puzzle piece to be fit together with other students’ pieces. The resource gives you the choice of creating a MAP or a QUILT that will become a bulletin board display with the title, “We Are Unique, But We All Fit Together.” Task Card Question cards help to generate ideas and a worksheet allows them to save their ideas for the project. Directions, read aloud books, posters, maps and quilt templates will ensure success.
