The Tin Can project provided various opportunities for children to engage in diversity as the project spanned over many different holidays. Educator Rukmanie wanted to emphasize cultural diversity throughout the project by celebrating holidays such as Chinese New Year, Hanukah, and so many more. Using Tin Cans, the children created a Tin Can Chinese Dragon, and even a menorah. These opportunities for children to submerse themselves in diverse culture built cultural awareness and diversity, along with inclusion and a sense of belonging as the children felt a deep connection and relation to some of the holidays celebrated.
