My values for making a better world (30 mins)Goal of activity
Students research their personal values
Student pledge to implement one new value in daily life.
Our values in life guide our action. Let's look more closely at our personal values.
Open the values worksheet by clicking here.
Give the students about 10 minutes to answer the questions. Tell them that all answers are correct and can be different for everyone.
Once everyone has filled it the worksheet. Pair the students off to share what they have written and discuss the value they have chosen to practice.
Now instruct each student to pledge (quietly in their own minds) to practice this value every day for the coming week.
Ask them to keep a note in their copybook of what they did and how it felt.
We all have the power to make the world a better place in our own way. Each individual is responsible for his or her actions and each little action has it's effect. So take the time to reflect on your values and use them every day for your and the world's benefit.
