This lesson is about empathy and how it is used in our friendships. The lesson includes: page by page "Read Aloud" modeling with discussion points and questions, partner/group activities, a writing activity with a rubric and an activity on dialogue development. This is my second lesson in character education. If you are looking to build your students knowledge of empathy further (to be used inside and outside the class room) check out my lesson on "the Invisible Boy" by Trudy Ludwig. Both of these stories exemplify how important empathy is to all of us and how we treat each other and form friendships. The lesson are great for any grade! Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
