For those of you who are familiar with Flowerpots and Families, you know just how incredibly meaningful and impactful the lesson is! I normally allocate an entire week to this lesson and created this activity as an extension piece. Here is a breakdown of what the week looks like for my Principles of Human Services course:
- Day 1: Students create their very own definition of the word "family" and decorate their
clay pots using sharpies accordingly

- Day 3: Students are given this Community Resource Investigation and must find one

- Day 4: Students share their resource with the class and begin glueing their pot back
Once pots are glued back together you can plant seeds in them! I recommend grass seeds - you'll have a full head within a week!
