Preparation for the lesson (tips for teacher, what to do before lesson, what to prepare).

Please explain here fully and in details what should be prepared for a lesson) If there are children of different races and cultures in our classroom, we will use first-hand experience, outlook on life, family organization ... to reach the conviction that basically all agree on most of these things.

At the end of the unit, students should recognize the influences of different races and cultures in his own life, and they will understand that people of different races are not too different and we share many common aspects of our daily lives.

Who am I? Think about who you are and how to explain to those around you the way you are, your likes and hobbies. Each one of us is defined with a name, a surname, but also with a nationality which puts us in a particular space. We may also use words that explain our appearance or our character, or terms that help us describe how we feel. All these aspects are the pieces of the puzzle with which you can build yourself and through which you can understand and explain who you are. Develops a personal portrait to explain who and how you are. You must describe, and draw you, combining images and words, speaking of tastes, feelings, your personality or your life. (Objective: To verify that the descriptions and drawings are very similar, almost identical, not only between children of the same race and nationality, but among other nationality or culture people.)

Who you are also dependent on those around you, your family and friends, from your peers class. Draw a family tree where your colleagues can see where you came from. It includes the whole family and you remember their names. Compare your tree with the rest of the class. What differences can observe? Surely in all those trees will be only as large families, children, relatives... They are living in other countries, and they have very different names and surnames. Choose the family of your peers more you liked and ask him to talk you about some relative. (Objective: to understand that all families are similar, regardless of racial or cultural origin)
