This is a great project for G+T students in fifth and sixth grade. Variations I have done include working individually and letting the students choose anywhere in the world they would like their country to be. The geography and climate of their portion of the earth affects the other aspects, such as history, customs, foods, etc.
Diversity in the workplace has to go further than there being employees of different backgrounds. Employers must strive for inclusion in the workplace to fully grasp the strengths and knowledge that each employee has. This leads to a workplace that values everyone's opinions and knowledge regardless of background.

History is... I created this to go into my students social studies binders. I was looking for a good, but simplistic, way to explain what history is and why they should care.

The Victorians liked to have their social classes clearly defined. The working class was divided into three layers, the lowest being 'working men' or labourers, then the ‘intelligent artisan’, and above him the ‘educated working man’. In reality, things were not so tidily demarcated. Photo: Glasgow slum, 1868
