Introduction: Hold the book All My Stripes by Shania Rudolph and Danielle
Royer up for the class to see. Explain to them that today we are going to read a book
aloud about the differences that people have and how we should treat others who
appear different. Have any of you ever felt that your differences are a bad thing?
Students will then have a short discussion about how their differences have made them
feel good or bad. The teacher will write responses down on the board.

Read: Teacher will read the book out loud to the students while they listen
sitting cross-legged on the floor.

Discuss: (“Think, Pair, Share”) Students will be given time to reflect on the
following questions. In groups of 2-4 the students will compare their responses to the
questions and discuss their thoughts as a group. After a few minutes each group will
discuss out load with the class their answers to the questions.

• Question 1: Why do you think Zane was not proud of his Autism Stripe?

• Question 2: Why do you think Zane did not look at his classmates when he wanted
to join their discussion about the video game he likes to play?

• Question 3: What do you think is the importance of Zane’s mother pointing out his
many different stripes?

• Question 4: What is Zane’s mothers favorite stripe? Why?

• Question 5: Do you believe the kids in Zanes class were wrong to point out and
make fun of his differences? Why or why not?


1. Students will work individually writing down one difference they feel they have
and why they feel it is unique to them and a good thing. They will then create a drawing
of themselves as a zebra with that special stripe.

2. After creating their unique drawing students will then pair up and share their
drawings and unique stripe. They will then tell each other what they believe another
unique strip of theirs is.


The teachers will review the pair discussions to ensure students understand that
each and every difference is special and no one should be teased because of them.
