Product Description

There are many times in “Where I Lived, and What I Lived For” when Thoreau discusses the importance of freeing ourselves from the pressures, expectations, and materialism of society so that we can live—and love—our own life. In this lesson, students will go on a "walk in the woods" to reflect on some of Thoreau’s key ideas about how we should live our lives. In other words, students will move around the hallway to brainstorm their ideas about different quotes from Thoreau's writing. Each quote is printed on a tree to bring the learning to life in a Transcendental way! Students will then return to the classroom to discuss the quotes together.

Lesson is an editable PPT that includes a cover slide, essential questions, objectives, activity instructions, brainstorming hints, quotes, group assignment slide, whole-class discussion questions, exit ticket, and homework slide. Also includes an editable Walk in the Woods Notes worksheet (word document).
