Product Description

This set of activities is designed to help students: better understand the concept of respect, practice identifying what respect looks like in various situations, and reflect and share on their own opinions and experiences with respect. The ultimate goal is to help develop more respectful students and a more respectful classroom and school community by choosing to treat one another respectfully as fellow human beings!

These activities can be done all together in one long lesson, broken up into several shorter lessons or community circle activities, or selected to use as needed with specific individual or group students.

This resource includes:

• Written lesson plan with ASCA mindsets/behaviors and CASEL competencies

PowerPoint to guide discussion (defining respect, reflecting on how we choose to respect someone) and review activities

"Four Corners" hook activity

Anchor chart (digital version and headings for chart paper included, plus student worksheet)

Puzzles (types of respect + examples)

• Sorting "Pick a Card!" activity (rude vs. respectful)

"Finish the Sentence" (reflect using a movement-based cooperative learning activity or worksheet)

Exit Ticket and "Kudos Cards" (for more self-reflection and peer reinforcement)

ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors

  • Create positive and supportive relationships with other students
  • Create relationships with adults that support success
  • Demonstrate ethical decisionmaking and social responsibility
  • Demonstrate empathy

CASEL (Social Emotional Learning) Competencies

  • Relationship Skills
  • Responsible Decision Making

Resource Rationale

Respect is one of the most important elements of any environment or community but it can be subjective. This resource helps students understand respect and come to a common understanding of it by providing numerous examples and differentiated opportunities to practice their understanding independently or in small groups. The puzzles and sorting cards provide for a collaborative and hands-on/tactile approach while the worksheets allow for independent thinking and reflection.
