DHIFI’s signature education program is Kids Flaunt, produced in collaboration with Scholastic, Inc. Available at no cost to schools or families, Kids Flaunt includes a full lesson plan for third, fourth and fifth grade classrooms with follow-up writing or art activity inspired by the DHIFI theme, “The things that make me different make me, me.” Kids Flaunt 2020 is an incredible opportunity for teachers to get to know their students, whether learning in the classroom or at home.
Kids Flaunt Student Activity Sheet
After completing the lesson plan and follow up activity, teachers or parents/guardians can elect to submit their students’ work for the Kids Flaunt contest. Winners are independently judged by a team at Scholastic on the quality of their content and self-expression, and winning students and teachers both receive valuable prizes for themselves and their classrooms.
In 2020, the Kids Flaunt contest runs from September 10 to November 16. There are also incredible prizes for the Grand Prize and 1st place essay and art winners! Teachers: missed the deadline? After the contest closes, the curriculum remains available for effective year-round in building empathy and understanding. Check out the lesson plan here.
DHIFI also works in direct partnership with individual schools and districts, developing programs for full school communities or specific grades, including:
- School assemblies
- Individual class workshops
- Video chat visits and presentations
- Custom curriculum enhancements
