PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource is perfect for Back-to-School(but can also be used at other times during the school year) to help to build a positive class climate and community.

There are 3 activities included.

1) Students will explore the difference between "fair" and "equal" so that differences between the learners in the class can begin to be embraced.

2) Students will complete a poster/calling card of their own "super strength", displaying all of the different and wonderful strengths of the class and putting each student in the role of an expert in some area of their school day.

3) Finally, students will identify some areas of weakness and complete a goal setting activity by creating a bookmark.

Student printables and templates are included, or you may want to just present the slides to students for certain parts of the activities.

Please download the FREE PREVIEW for a look at thumbnails and more information of what's included!

I really liked this product. I used it in the beginning of the year with my sixth graders and it was a very insightful lesson. We spent nearly an hour just talking about fair vs. equal. Great work!
