Product Description
Use this sweet little unit to teach tolerance and acceptance of those who are different. Not everyone need look and behave exactly the same. Let's forgive each other our foibles! Kids hate lectures, but love songs with meaning that teach them about life. Johnny Depp is one of those songs. Use this song and these prompts to get imaginations going - and kindness showing!

Johnny Depp lyrics describe a scruffy boyfriend who looks a little like a pirate. Should our main character mind his scruffiness - when her friend treats her so well? Discuss. What really matters - what we look like, or how we treat others?

This Disney-style studio recording and prompts teach kids to be more open-minded.The material may appear playful and light - but it's actually very deep! Use this song track and prompts to support any social skills and anti bullying program you may already have in place. This unit is also great for inspiring young writers. Let's spark imaginations!

Our Johnny Depp song is a PERFECT addition to any classroom playlist.
