  1. 1. Each One Unique Classroom PowerPoint By: Alyssa Ransdell Background graphic from
  2. 2. How this PowerPoint is meant to be used: This presentation was created to be used as a lesson for second grade students. The teacher could use this in the classroom while teaching students about physical differences amongst people. Simply click the desired section on the next slide (Table of Contents). When finished with that section, select the home link on the bottom of the page to return to the contents.
  3. 3. Table of Contents • Introduction to Lesson • In What Ways Are We Alike? • In What Ways Are We Different? • Example of Activity • Assessment • Websites to Visit • Resources
  4. 4. Introduction • Define unique. • Are you unique? • What makes you unique? • Does everyone look exactly the same? • What would the world be like if everyone looked the same?
  5. 5. Some Key Terms Defined • Even though there are many ways that we can be alike and different, for this science lesson we are going to focus on the way we look or our physical characteristics. HOME
  6. 6. First let’s see how we can all look alike • Humans • Some boys, some girls • Similar hair color • Similar eye color • Same size • Skin color • And many more… Even though these things make us look alike, are we really exactly the same? If two people have blonde hair, does their hair look EXACTLY the same?
  7. 7. Maybe One Exception… IDENTICAL TWINS!!! Only identical twins look exactly the same. Regular twins do not look EXACTLY the same. Twins graphic from HOME
  8. 8. Now let’s see what makes us look different • Eyes • Hair • Skin • Shape • Size • Height • Gender • Ethnicity (What does that mean?) • Noses • Hands • Feet • Face Shape • Can you think of more???
  9. 9. Are Differences Bad? NO!!!!!!! Looking different makes the world an interesting place. We should celebrate our different looks. Each person is unique and beautiful in their own way.
  10. 10. So, unless you are an identical twin, you look completely unique! We all look different! HOME
  11. 11. Example of Activity • First, I observed people around me: All photos taken by Alyssa Ransdell
  12. 12. Then I picked three friends and drew their differences… Original drawing created via Paint by Alyssa Ransdell
  13. 13. Now it is your turn… • First, observe everyone around you. You may move around and take note of differences that you see. • Choose three friends and draw their differences on paper. HOME
  14. 14. Assessment • What did we learn? • In what ways can we look different? • Can any two people look exactly the same? • Are differences a bad thing? HOME
  15. 15. Although identical twins are a rare exception, EVERYONE LOOKS DIFFERENT! Differences make things interesting and should be celebrated each chance we get!
  16. 16. Websites to Visit • sKids.aspx?p=335&np=286&id=2345 This site has great information for kids but they would need the help of an adult. • This site has a great game for kids that would really add on to this lesson. • sci_2_4_6.pdf This is a lesson plan for teachers that goes right along with this lesson on physical differences. HOME
  17. 17. Resources • This PowerPoint was created to fulfill the second grade academic standard: 2.4.6 – Observe and describe the different external features of people such as their size, shape, and color of their hair, skin, and eyes. • Information on this presentation was found at: ndards/StandardSearch.aspx.
