My Skin, Your Skin

My Skin, Your Skin is a powerful book to help children and adults have meaningful discussions about race and anti-racism. Most importantly, the book empowers children to be the best versions of themselves; to have self-love, self-esteem and self-worth, irrespective of their skin colour.

The following resources allow students in KS1 to explore the book’s themes of anti-racism and empowerment.

The resources include three activities:

  • Activity One – What makes you unique?
    Explore our differences and reflect on what makes us unique
  • Activity Two – Let’s talk racism
    Understanding racism, why it is wrong and what to do if they experience or see racism
  • Activity Three – Let’s talk empowerment
    Reflect on why we are special and what we are good at
