Celebrating Our Differences

Contact:  Claudia C. Mincemoyer, cxm324@psu.edu

Description:  Children begin to recognize differences at very young ages. They see what goes on around them by listening, observing, and exploring. Our cars are different, our houses are different, our looks are different, even our smells are different.  We live in a diverse world where children will be exposed to many different people and experiences. As adults caring for children, we can show the positive aspects of differences.  Often children, and we ourselves,may be sorting out our ideas about differences.  This website offers ideas to help children understand and respect similarities and differences among people.
