With the rise of globalization and the age of technology, society has become more diverse. Current literature recognizes awareness of diversity, particularly Multicultural Awareness, as an important asset for an individual to adjust, build relationships, and ultimately thrive in our globalized society. However, despite being identified as a learning competency in the K-12 curriculum of the Department of Education in the Philippines, there appears to be a significant lack of literature regarding implementing or integrating multicultural awareness in the education sector. With this in mind, this capstone project has produced a set of instructional modules to be facilitated by teachers, aiming to develop multicultural awareness among Kindergarten students through a familiar and exciting medium for young children: Children's literature and Art Activities.

This project consists of 10 modules that cover children's literature and art activities that aim to instil multicultural awareness among Filipino children. In particular, the modules follow the framework and definition established by the Department of Education as it aims to introduce the different cultural dimensions to Kindergarten students. The children's literature and art activities included in this project would allow young Filipino children to explore and be immersed in different cultures from around the world.
