Product Description
In this activity students think about, discuss and learn how the world measures happiness. It serves as a great introduction activity for a geography classroom. Through this activity you are able to see what countries and preconceived ideas students already have.

Included in this download is a PDF version and an editable word version if you would like to adapt to your specific needs!

I structure this activity by first going over the directions and providing comical/unrealistic examples. Next students are given 5-10 minutes to silently complete the individual columns. Once everyone is done I split them into small groups to share and discuss their ideas. Then they must work together to create a group version. This encourages them to work on teamwork, compromising, and debating. As the groups finish I had them type their answers into a word document. Once all of the groups finished we looked at the different answers, looking for similarities/differences, what regions of the world we picked, etc. At this point I play the summary video of the World Happiness Report, pausing as needed for students to copy down the official answers. Lastly to wrap the activity up students answer the questions on the back of the worksheet and turn it in.

It is amazing the conversations that students are able to have and this is a great way to encourage students to start discussing work together!
