Organizing a visit to the classroom, such as a local homeless shelter or a nursing home, can really help children recognize the importance of the values they are learning and, at the same time, give them the opportunity to put what they have learned into practice. If your main learning materials seem to lack diversity, look for images, videos or texts that help promote an inclusive environment and attitude among students. Children must also learn to identify with others, to manage their own thoughts and emotions, and to make responsible decisions based on social norms and personal integrity. We have assembled a collection of resources and materials to help you use stories to convey values in your teaching. It is important that children learn values such as tolerance and respect for their fellow citizens. Fairy tales, fables and traditional tales often have clear morals or values, and can be particularly effective in developing social, emotional and civic skills. As educators, our mission is to help children become responsible citizens who care about the world around them. We must teach children about diversity and celebrate the differences between us. Here are some tips and ideas that will help you add value to your lessons. Think about how we can learn from different people and the importance of listening to the advice from the Jungle Book.

Discuss the difference between each person and the importance of respecting the opinions of others with the city mouse and the country mouse.

Resources, including downloadable worksheets, challenges, a classroom poster and more, will be available each week on our dedicated website.
