This is a lesson plan for teachers who may be new to teaching about gender identity and are looking for a safe way to look at individuality as a starting point. This activity is about showing diversity and showing that it is ok to be different.

I can understand and share information about a topic that is important to me
I communicate effectively in well-constructed forms that are effective in terms of my audience and purpose.
I deliberately learn a lot about something (e.g., by doing research, talking to others or practising) so that I am able to generate new ideas or ideas just pop into my head.
I can get new ideas in areas in which I have an interest and build my skills to make them work.

The material offers an introduction to refugee and displacement issues for students in grade 6 and up. The educational resources are the result of a collaborative effort between the graduate school class (summer 2008) of Dr. Jan Stewart, Director of the Institute for War-Affected Children at Global College, University of Winnipeg and Médecins Sans Frontières/ Doctors Without Borders (MSF). The materials were developed based upon an earlier MSF educational publication: “A Refugee Camp in the City, On Assignment” Teachers Guide, MSF Canada (2003).
We hope these five lesson plans will encourage students to continue to learn and understand the challenges more than 50 million refugees and internally displaced people face worldwide
