What educators are saying

My students loved this lesson! I used a real pineapple so they could touch it. It was easy for them to understand and they had a lot of fun sharing about themselves.

This elementary school counseling classroom guidance lesson asks students to pretend they've never seen a "mystery object" (pineapple) before and make inferences about it's purpose by simply looking at the outside of it. Students learn that judging something (or someone!) by its outward appearance leads to missing out on the sweet stuff on the inside. Students create a folding pineapple craft to share a piece of themselves with the group to promote unity and acceptance!

Optional additional supplies: bring a real pineapple(s) to enhance the lesson!

Includes lesson plan (objectives, outline/script, materials list, ASCA standards alignment), pineapple pictures, pineapple folding craft (2 options), and objectives assessment checklist.

**This lesson is included in my Pineapple-Themed Classroom Guidance Lesson Bundle AND the Ultimate Classroom Guidance Lesson Bundle 2**
