What do people from other cultures contribute when they migrate and become part of a new society. Why should these different traditions and customs be valued? They enrich a society because they allow people to experience different thinking processes, to see that there is more than one way of approaching issues or living one's life. Q24. Read the story below about the squares, circles, triangles and the rectangles. Add a suitable ending to the story based on the acceptance of diversity and the benefits of a multicultural society.

They just looked and looked and looked. The Rectangles and the Circles had made a wagon! A lovely beautiful wagon! And then everyone became excited. They all wanted to make something. The Squares and Circles made a train. A Rectangle made the smokestack. Some Circles made smoke. The Triangles and Rectangles made trees. They all worked together and made a lovely house. They made things that were pretty. (e.g., sun, boat, Jack-in-the-box, houses, and flowers). They made things that were fun. Everyone had a wonderful marvellous, beautiful time. When it was time to go home, they all sang a little song! "We are glad, glad, glad! Being different isn't bad!" and they sang it over and over, all the way home. The End.
