Part of the Teach for Justice
This resource is part of a collection of educator-created, expert-vetted resources to help you create learning environments to support every student, challenge biases, and encourage discussions around race and social injustice. Explore the collection.


The purpose of this resource is to raise awareness of discrimination in outdoor spaces and to teach about the benefits of diversity. This workbook is divided into five sections. One section will be completed by students each day, along with other discussions and activities outlined in the teacher’s guide. This workbook is meant to be used to complement important discussions pertaining to racism, privilege, discrimination and diversity. 

Content Warning: This resource covers a sensitive topic, including discussions of violence. It can lead to students asking difficult questions. Be prepared to have thoughtful and purposeful discussions with students. Create a safe and non-judgemental space within your classroom.
