Lately we have been learning about people who might be different than us and judging people who we don’t even know. We have also been learning about stereotyping and prejudice.
Stereotyping means looking at someone and putting them in a group where there are certain characteristics and activities. Stereotyping can go on and on. For example, Boys have short hair, but some short haired Boys play rugby and some play basketball.
Prejudice means you are walking down the street and you see someone with one leg and you say, “Eww!” and run off. But they might be very bright and own a computer company or something like that. It means judging someone when you don’t know anything about them. Here are some pictures of what we have been doing in class.
