Second Grade Identity Celebration

(More photos below) What makes me, me? What makes you, you? These questions were the heart of the second graders’ recent Identity Unit and Celebration. Students explored visible and invisible aspects of identity in a cross-disciplinary experience intersecting social science, social-emotional learning, and DEIJ work.

They created representative objects with our technology and maker space teacher, wrote “Best Part of Me Poems” and “Truly Me” stories, and belief badges to show their personal, family, and neurodiversity identities. 

At their Celebration, students shared artifacts, practicing the agency of choosing how one talks about their identity and listening with compassion.
