Last Stop on Market Street takes students on a journey with a young boy and his nana from a bus stop to a soup kitchen. Along the way, students will be challenged to see the beauty in the colorful world around them. This module asks students to explore tolerance and acceptance of those different from themselves. The rainbow comes to serve as both a science lesson in light and a reflective lesson in peace.
