This is a group activity that asks the students to put into their own words updated versions of Ben Franklin's list of thirteen virtues. This is done after reading the section of Franklin's autobiography that talks about the 13 virtues.
First each group comes up with their own versions. Then the groups share their versions on a Powerpoint so that the whole class can see the different variations and come to some sort of consensus on the best way to update each virtue.
Works great in helping students see that what Ben Franklin was concerned about morally back then can still apply today.
Comes with a worksheet for the groups and the Powerpoint to enter in their responses. Also includes in the Powerpoint tips for the teacher on how to use this lesson.
