Please watch these Sesame Street and CNN segments and have a discussion about the topics addressed on the shows.

Here are some questions to discuss:

  • 1) What’s racism?

Racism is treating people unfairly just because of the color of their skin. That’s wrong and unfair.

  • 2) Why talk about our feelings?

Our words are powerful. Talking helps us use our words to share how we feel and what is happening. Sharing can help us feel better.

  • 3) What’s an upstander?

An upstander is someone who uses their kind words and actions to help themselves and their friends.

  • 4) What color are we?

There are many different skin colors. All skin colors are beautiful. In our family, we call our skin color (fill in your beautiful skin color)________________, and like other colors ours is beautiful!
