National Mix It Up In Lunch Day – A national campaign launched by Teaching Tolerance over a decade ago, Mix It Up at Lunch encourages students to identify, question and cross social boundaries. Survey results, students have identified the cafeteria as the place where divisions are most clearly drawn. So on October 22nd, we asked students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch. It’s a simple act with profound implications. Studies have shown that interactions across group lines can help reduce prejudice. When students interact with those who are different from them, biases and misperceptions can fall away. We had a puzzle at each table for students to collaborate to complete their puzzle. The table who completes the puzzle first will be awarded a free snack.
