The team of students who created this website also made the It's Time for Tolerance Slideshow about promoting tolerance, having a Mix It Up at Lunch Day, and having a poster contest. We shared the slideshow with many classes in our school. We hope you enjoy the presentation too!
We created this presentation to teach kids how to promote tolerance and respect differences. At our school, we think kids can try harder to break down the walls between cultures and races. What's it like at your school?
Sometimes it's easier to be friends with people who are just like you. It is harder to be friends with people who are different than you. But when we do break down the walls between us, this wonderful world of ours will only get better. If our goal of promoting tolerance is completed, one day there will be world peace!
We made the presentation by taking some of the important information we learned from reading each other's webpages. We also wrote an oath and included that, too. You may want to read the webpages on this site and create your own presentation for your school.
We also wrote a script for a short skit you may want to perform during your presentation. We used it when we made this presentation. The skit comes after the sixth slide. You can use it too. You need two people to present this skit. This skit made our presentation more interesting and our audience really seemed to like it.
We also included information on having a Mix it Up at Lunch Day. On Mix It Up at Lunch Day, you sit next to someone you don't usually sit with. Our school also had one.
You could also have students in your school make posters for a poster contest (details are in the presentation). The posters should be on stopping bullying or promoting tolerance.
Here are four tips for you (if you are going to present this slideshow). First, don't squirm around. Second, speak loudly and clearly. Third, be very comfortable while speaking (don't stand like a statue). Fourth, speak loud enough for everyone to hear.
Thanks for learning about our presentation. Be sure to make one of your own at your school!
