This short PowerPoint introduces Kid President's "20 Things We Should Say More Often" video and includes the YouTube link. All of my students from elementary to junior high LOVE his hilarious videos and easily understand his message. His videos are a fun way to build character in the classroom. The two coordinating worksheets promote higher level thinking and really gets students talking in the classroom. Students will learn:
~ note-taking skills
~ the writing process
~ higher level thinking
I love using this lesson for the last 10-20 minutes of class or during a whole unit! I enjoy seeing my students being so positive in the classroom and really reflecting on how to make the world a more awesome place! This is perfect as a back-to-school activity or an activity to celebrate the new year.
