I am looking to plan some activities and circle time to celebrate that we are all different! I have quite a few circle time ideas, but finding it difficult to get my head around ideas which the children can work on for a permanent display. Mrs Ofsted recently suggested it was an area we could add a little more zest to!!!

Would be interested to hear how everybody out there has addressed this with their Pre-school children....and does anybody have any songs they have taught their children?! Was thinking something very simple perhaps in another language...?

Ideas welcomed..!!!

Thanks
Melanie

We have just done we are all unique we have...
We have done a lot of activities related to Elmer
We looked at similarities and differences between us and things
we have identical twins and we did our favourite things to show that even if we look similar we feel different things
We drew portraits of our friends
We did finger prints

We've done footprints, handprints and eye colour graphs. Done height charts and looked at hair colour and length. I've taken photographs of children in profile and made them into cameo-type pictures to see if children can recognise each other.

They sound like great ideas...also trying to capture ideas for addressing cultural differences/disability awareness if possible :o

we're currently doing 'All About Me' and are getting the children to look in a mirror and paint a picture of themselves adding wool for hair. We are also doing a family tree for each child and asking for family photos.
Hope this gives you some ideas

That's what I was thinking you could use as a base colour, mixing them together to get closer shades
