Many people confuse fun with happiness. In this lesson students will be analyzing the difference between these two terms and how those differences affect lives. Everyone wants to have fun, but does it make a person happy? Happiness is what you experience after an act or activity. It is feeling grateful and/or content continuously.
Happiness is elusive and can be very confusing for young people. It is important that they not confuse the two concepts. So many young people go from one fun activity to another in search of something more in their life. What they are really searching for is what will make them happy. In today’s world we need to help our students see the difference, so they are not lost in a never ending world of more and more fun without finding meaning.
Students will learn the difference between fun and happiness.
Students will learn this by defining fun and happiness, giving examples of what they or others do for fun.
Students will discuss whether they experience happiness after participating in those fun activities.
Students will be assessed by completion of their work and participation in class activities.
