Chrysanthemum is made fun of for her name being different. In my classroom, I would teach students about how different our community is. From race, gender, sex, beliefs, and customs, there is many attributes that come into making you who you are. I will discuss with my class that you should always be accepting to one another. You may not know what they could bring to the table if you never gave them a chance. The students would be given a "secret friend" and would then have to write on construction paper one thing they liked best about their friend. We would share this to the class. It would bring my class together and make every student feel good.
Intended Audience/Grade Level: 2nd-3rd Grade.
