This activity was a great lesson plan to use to explain citizenship. For this lesson, I read to the students "Horton hatches the Egg," and we would pause throughout the story to talk about how Horton was being a good citizen. For example, "I'll stay on this egg and I won't let it freeze. I meant what I said and I said what I meant and an elephants faithful 100%." At this part, I let the kids talk about what characteristics Horton was displaying (i.e. Horton was responsible because he kept his word, Horton was being a good citizen because he was helping his neighbor, etc). After we read the story I gave each student a piece of construction paper, a piece of white computer paper, and a cut out picture of Horton which is the product. (I put two on a sheet to conserve paper). I had the kids fold the paper hamburger then hot dog style so they had 4 boxes. The kids then cut out the boxes and glued them on 4 corners of the construction paper. On the four corners they wrote how Horton was being a good citizen (any of the ways we talked about, or new ones they thought of.) They then glued Horton in the middle of the paper and drew 4 lines to each box. We displayed them around the classroom so that the kids would be reminded of being a good citizen even in school.
