Who are you? Where do you come from?
Both simple, yet very difficult questions to answer. Interestingly, your answers may change over time and both are thoughts I questioned of myself when first reading Sophie’s World in 2000.
Let’s Open Our World asked 67 people from all over the world to take a DNA test, and it turns out they have much more in common with other nationalities than they would ever have thought.
It’s easy to think there are more things dividing us than uniting us. But we actually have much more in common with other nationalities than you’d think. Despite this video being published over 5 months ago, I only came across it last week! Nonetheless, it is worth sharing widely on your social media networks. It would also make a fantastic assembly, so please, do share this with your students and colleagues.
The DNA Journey:
Plan your assembly?
You can watch more individual stories here. Why not use the 5 Minute Assembly Plan to integrate DNA, nationalities and community into a school assembly?
If you do use the video in an assembly or during a registration class with a tutor group, I’d love to know how it was received.
