Use this lesson to help teach tolerance and appreciation of individual differences. Throughout this lesson, students will acknowledge their own differences and learn that it is these differences that make them special. You will need the book "Don't Laugh at Me" by Steve Seskin and Allen Shamblin, which also comes with a CD version of the song. You will also need poster paper and a Power Point presentation related to the book (available on this website as Don't Laugh at Me Power Point). There are also several Power Points available on YouTube.
