Product Description
How do children make good decisions when they do not consider alternatives or consequences? In this lesson, third, fourth and fifth grade students help Alan with his choices and, in so doing, learn steps to healthy decision making. Students are actively engaged through games, class-generated ground rules, working in teams, and participating in interactive activities. In addition, activities are customized to meet the learning needs of third, fourth, and fifth graders. At the end of the lesson, students should have learned to think ahead, consider alternatives and apply them before making a decision.
