Empower children to handle challenges by asking and seeking answers to questions like: What is a challenge? How can I be a solutions-based thinker and solve my challenges?
This lesson plan is organized as a choice board to empower both the educator and the learner by providing multiple ways to differentiate, learn, re-learn, review, and extend learning. Many of these ideas are great to share with parents as activities they can do at home (e.g. share in a monthly newsletter or at a parent-teacher conference to integrate parents into the learning process).
(Note: As a classroom teacher, you do NOT need to purchase multiple licenses to distribute to your parents. I only ask that each teacher make the purchase once.)
This choice board includes 4 introduction, 9 main lesson activities, 4 conclusion options, additional challenge discussion scenarios and extension questions. Plus, I included one of my top selling products, a lesson plan to help children learn to think critically and ask higher-order thinking questions.
Mix and match, or better yet, have the children mix and match to meet their readiness, interest, and learning needs.
With this lesson, children will learn to:
- Ask questions about challenges, problem-solving, responsibility, and innovation
- Use observations, interactions, and collaboration to face challenges
- Observe, be creative, adapt to change, and accept feedback based on developing understanding
- Reflect on how the knowledge and concepts addressed during this lesson can be applied in different times and places throughout life
- Identify specific challenges in a child’s own life
- Plan (and perhaps take) personally meaningful action to address challenges
