Here are some activities and resources for teaching about Unity:

The Ruhi Book 3 lesson on Unity, includes a beautiful song that starts with:
"We are drops of one ocean,
           We are pearls of one sea,
           Come and join us in our quest for unity,
           It's a way of life for you and me..."
To get the lyrics and music, CDs with this song, and other Ruhi Book 3 materials, you can go to

Also from this lesson is a Baha'i quote: "So powerful is the light of unity that it can illumine the whole earth."

One of my all time favorite books that can be used to teach multicultural education or character education is called "The Crayon Box That Talked" by Shane DeRolf (it was based on an anti-racism campaign). Kids love it and the illustrations are adorable. It is about a box of crayons where the crayons don't get along. Eventually a girl comes and buys them and uses all the different colors to draw a picture. They then start to realize how special they each are. I love the ending part:   
"We are a box of crayons,
                Each one of us unique,
                But when we get together...
                The picture is complete."
You can get more info about this book on Amazon by clicking on the book here:

You can also have children make a collage with pictures they cut out that show people working together in unity.

Anyways, those are just some extra ideas you might want to use to supplement your lessons on unity.

Now it's your turn...I would like to hear from you :).
