Welcome to Many Cultures, Many Friends
Why Cultural Diversity?
Have you ever wondered what "Cultural Diversity" is? Well, cultural diversity is:
Having people of different races, cultures, religions, nationalities, ethnic groups and backgrounds make up a community.
It is important because our country, our workplaaces and our schools include people of many different ethnic groups and interests. We can learn from one another, but first we must have an understanding of one another.
This school year we will be exploring many different cultures from around the world. We will look at different cultures each month. We will post information periodically so check back to see what we have found!
