Describing the Group
Rating the Group
Ask students to fold their blue strip in half and put it to the side. Repeat this process for the other two target groups. When finished, have three students collect the strips, each one picking up a specific color. Next, have the students shuffle the folded strips and redistribute one of each color to every class member. Students will be anxious to read what is on their strips. Instruct them not to say anything as they read their new strips, especially, "I got my own".

Create a Collective Poem with sentence starters such as:
Read the children's book "If the World Were a Village" by David J. Smith (ISBN 1-55074-779-7) which shrinks the world's population to 100 people and provides a community-based perspective on topics like nationalities, languages, ages, religions, food, schooling, money, etc.
Create a collage by combining the adjective posters, their acrostic poems, written personal experiences, and pictures and artwork that present how assumptions and stereotypes make them feel.
Make an historical timeline showing important events in the histories of traditionally underrepresented groups in Utah.
If students are reading Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, by Mildred D. Taylor, in their Language Arts class, they can look for examples of stereotyping and prejudice in the story.
