PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Who decides what’s important? When it comes to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, which is more important, the peanut butter or the jelly? The bread, maybe? Perspective and/or individual tastes and experiences can sway one’s opinion of what’s significant, although there are some things that we all can agree are important. This activity is great for introducing the concept of opinions, and identifying the main idea.

The Important Thing... is a dual lesson on self-esteem and finding the salient point. Yippee! You don’t often have those two things come together so nicely! This academic activity is centered around Margaret Wise Brown’s classic, The Important Book. Students are then tasked to pick any item (that is not in the book) and briefly write what’s most important about it. On a separate sheet, they write about what’s most important about themselves.
