The Happiness Project
100 Things That Make Me Happy
Positive Thinking! Thanksgiving!
I have called this task The Happiness Project as I thought it would be a great project to do with older students who might need encouragement to think about the positive aspects in their lives. The things that make them happy or the things they are thankful for.
100 things that make me happy is a task designed to make students think about the things that make them happy in their life...no matter how little they may be. It could also be used as a discussion tool, to make comparisons with each other or as an ice-breaker with older students.
It is surprising how quickly you can think of 100 things! I you think about it quickly, it's easy to think of ten straight up...smell of rain, chocolate , the beach, my pets, art, friends, perfume, cooking, photography and music! You could get the students to fill in ten each day over a couple of weeks. It will help them to focus on the positives in their lives. The information they record could be used for a number of things including poetry, art or journal writing.
I hope you like my idea!
Thanks so much for visiting!
