This class lesson is a fun, interactive, impactful way to teach empathy and perspective-taking! Students work in pairs or groups throughout an empathy obstacle course, completing missions at 5 different stations. These hands-on stations help put students in the shoes of those who have difficulty staying focused, are blind or have poor sight, have one arm or a broken arm, and are in a difficult social or home situation. Students will also reflect on the terms of empathy, sympathy, and perspective-taking through a poster activity, and will reflect on the overall obstacle course at the end of this lesson. This obstacle course requires 60 minutes total, and can be broken down into multiple sessions. See preview for a small sample. Included in this download are:
➤Color-coded materials for 5 stations, all available in black and white as well to print on colored paper:
•1 yellow station direction sign and 6 task cards
