Look at yourself in the mirror.

  • What makes you different from your brother, sister, or parent?
  • Do you have different-colored hair or eyes?
  • What makes you the same as your brother, sister, or parent?
  • Do you have the same skin color or smile?

Everyone is unique, meaning we are all different and special.

Though we are each unique, we are similar to those in our family in how we look and act. We also have similar likes and dislikes as our friends.

We all come from this one big world, but we get to make our own unique life.

In this lesson, look at YOU!

  • How are YOU unique?
  • How are YOU the same — and connected — to the human race?

Let's get started!

Watch the video below to see how children from different countries say, “Hello.”

  • Can you pronounce their words for hello?
  • Are the clothes they wear different than yours?
  • What symbols do you see?

There is a great book called We Are All Alike…We Are All Different written by a kindergarten class.

  • Reading the title of the story, what do you think the story will be about?

As you listen to the read-aloud of this story in the following video, answer the questions about you.

  • After hearing the story, can you name one way we are all alike?
  • What is one way that we are all different?

For example, we are all the same because we all have families, but we are different because some people live with their Moms, some with their Dads, and some with grandparents.
