What makes us who we are?


Discuss things that are similar and different between you and your family members - looks, hobbies, favourite food etc. We are all special because there is no-one else exactly like us on this planet – there never has been and there never will be again! (You could use the word 'unique').

Draw a picture of yourself. The picture must include (either drawn or written):

  • Something about yourself which shows a distinct physical feature (e.g: brown hair, blue eyes, light or dark skin)
  • A group that you belong to (this could be your family, a particular faith group, a friendship group, a club you belong to in school or out of school etc.)
  • A physical activity you enjoy doing (e.g: running, football, cycling, swimming, bouncing on the trampoline etc.)
  • A food you enjoy eating
  • A favourite toy

You can add further things to this list if you want to. Or replace some of the above with your own ideas.


Talk about the following questions with a grown up.

  • Is it OK to have things which make them different to others?
  • If someone looks different to you or likes doing things that you don’t like does that mean we should treat them differently?

Try to give reasons for your answers.
