LGBTQAI+

We will have LGBTQAI+ themed mad lib worksheets for students to be creative, have fun, and learn about the culture! This activity is more light-hearted and silly.

We will also have a display with a prompt for students to anonymously respond with their thoughts/feelings/ideas about gender identity. This is a collaborative writing piece for everyone to share in a deeper, thought-provoking activity.

We will also have a lot of poetry for students to just lay out and read if they wish! We strive to make this a safe space for all to come, relax, have fun, and just be who they are.
