Part of developing responsibility is understanding how choices have consequences, both good and bad. This lesson plan includes several activities to use with middle-upper elementary students to help them recognize the impact of their choices and become more responsible decision makers. Pick and choose which activities to use in your lesson or small group to meet the needs and levels of your students!

*This lesson is also available as part of my Responsibility Lesson Plan Bundle.*

This resource includes:

• Written lesson plan with ASCA mindsets/behaviors and CASEL competencies

• Optional hook using Kid President’s “Making Tough Choices” video

• Two fill in the blank activity sheets

• Two different puzzle sets (two piece: choice to consequence, four piece: scenario to three consequences)

• “I Have, Who Has” game

• Exit ticket

ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors

  • Demonstrate critical-thinking skills to make informed decisions
  • Demonstrate ethical decision making and social responsibility

CASEL (Social Emotional Learning) Competencies

  • Self-Management
  • Responsible Decision Making

Resource Rationale

Children need to understand that there are consequences (good and/or bad) to every choice that we make. This resource helps them make the connection by providing numerous examples and differentiated opportunities to practice their understanding independently or in small groups. The puzzles provide for an hands-on/tactile approach while the fill in the blanks push students to think deeper and more creatively.

How to Use This Resource

This resource works in both whole group guidance lessons or small group sessions for students grades 2nd-5th. If using the puzzles, you may choose to select the ones most applicable to your group. The materials included in this resource are enough to spread over the course of 2 lessons/sessions if desired.
