Thirteen children explain in German what they consider to be "schön." Pictures and text taken directly from: http://www.ksta.de/archiv/was-kinder-ueber-schoenheit-denken,16592382,12012946.html
Students read through the descriptions (difficulty marked on reading from 1 - 3 stars) and take notes on the included chart. Students are trying to find out: what each child considers "schön;" what, if anything, they consider "hässlich;" if they consider themselves "schön;" and if the child focuses on inner or outer beauty.
Extension: Have students analyze how gender and age alters our perceptions of beauty.
