We Are Multi-colored

Page history last edited by stephanie.leonard@... 10 years, 10 months ago



Introduction: We Are Multicolored is a free, simple website that teachers can use as a tool to incorporate history, diversity, ethnicity, and culture into the lessons they use in their classroom. It is an interactive site that allows students to choose three flags (i.e. where they live, what country has affected them, and their dream destination) to create one flag that is personal and unique to each individual. This tool allows the students to express their differences by creating their own flag.
