This social studies unit, developed for teachers working in integrated classroom situations, is intended to build better understanding between teacher and pupils and between pupils themselves. The unit focuses on the differences and similarities between all human beings and states as its objectives: To observe physical likenesses, physical differences, racial characteristics; to identify groups, accept certain similarities among mankind, and value the worth and dignity of every human being; to value the richness of group diversity, and to develop and awareness of the beauty of color in people and in the world around us. A pretest to determine student attitudes involves an individual interview between teacher and pupil, recording the pupil's observations on a multiracial picture. Fifteen lessons, utilizing color, sketching, films, books, pamphlets, sort cards, and other materials in varied activities, guide the student to an awareness of his own peers characteristics and to achieve the objectives of racial understanding, tolerance, acceptance, and respect. Objectives are clearly stated and activities are well organized to provide the teacher with a cohesive unit. A bibliography of supplementary reading for the teacher is included. (JMB)
