Week 4 begins with introducing our hero of the week, mountaineer and philanthropist Sir Edmund Hillary! This week students will explore the feelings of sadness and inadequacy (lack of confidence) and how to use the SEL Strategy of the Week - Take the Hope Float - to work through them. Students will see how Sir Edmund modeled humility in real life and then practice celebrating personal accomplishments with humility, by considering and acknowledging others in their speech and choices.
As we look into the life of Sir Edmund, we’ll uncover how this gentle giant not only achieved great things personally, but helped others achieve, too.
