Main Curriculum Tie:
Read the book as a class.
Reflect with the students what the problem was.
Ask students to think about their family as their own color of crayon. For example, the "Thompson" color has things that make them unique.
What does that family do to make them different? Maybe they celebrate holidays in a different way or not even at all.
Define the words tradition, diversity and culture using the vocabulary cards.
Explain that each family is diverse in that they have different traditions and a different culture.
Brainstorm with the students what types of traditions that they may have within their families. Explain that each student should choose a specific tradition that makes their familyís "crayon" unique.
Distribute the crayon template. Guide students in completing the sentence, "My favorite family tradition isÖ"
Students may then draw a picture of what their tradition looks like and finish coloring their crayon.
Display the crayons so that the class can reflect on the differences in each familyís traditions.
