Lesson 4 - Diversity


After learning where our diversity comes from and the benefits it brings to students' own lives, they then celebrate  difference by creating a pop group for Diversity Factor. There is lots of opportunity to develop learning further in Geography, History and RE, exploring topics such as migration, population, colonisation, the British Empire and multiculturalism.
