Teach the Children Peace Foundation Mini Grant
TCPF is a non-profit educational organization that supports programs that promote human dignity and respect for all the people of the world. Through educating our children about personal responsibility, compassion and acceptance, we can eradicate the ignorance that fosters hatred between one another and different cultures.
This grant is to be used for teaching children to create peace within themselves, their families and communities, locally and globally.
To prepare the students for the field trip, teach a lesson from the list of Lesson Plans provided by the Museum of Tolerance(MOT) or a Lesson Plan on Tolerance from your local Districts approved curriculum.
Link to the MOT Lessons:
After the field trip, have the students write a one-page reflection using one or more of the questions below:
-What are the similarities that brings people of diverse cultures together?
-What will I do today to make a difference by bringing peace to my family, school, neighborhood and the world?
-If peace begins with you, what can you do to feel peace inside yourself?
-Why do you think students bully? What can you do to stop the bullying?
