Downloadable Activity: My Esteem or Your Esteem? (13 & Counting: Does a Hamburger Really Have to Be Round?)

Classroom Activity for Teaching Students the Social Skill of "Setting Goals"

Tamara Zentic, MS


Whether we are aware of it or not, we constantly compare ourselves to others. This lesson is designed to get students to view themselves apart from others and to judge only their own growth in comparison to their own self. From Tamara Zentic's 13 & Counting: Does a Hamburger Really Have to Be Round?, students will display optimism by believing that effort will improve their future. 

This exercise is recommended for grades 7-12.

Materials needed:

    • Examples of "Personal Records" (PRs)
    • Paper
    • Pencils
    • Poster of the Boys Town social skill, "Setting Goals" (provided as a PDF)
