WHAT IS DIVERSITY?
The word diversity means lots of different types of things. Think of how many kinds of fruits, or T-shirts, or books there are. How about all of the many types of housing and transportation that exist? Or the amazing variety of birds, plants, and fish found all over the world?
Look around your town or city and around your school. How many shades of skin color do you see? Then think about the different ways people in your community worship, work, and play. Where do their families come from? What languages do they speak to communicate? How do they study and learn at school? It's not the same for everyone -- that's for sure.
