Self-esteem is more than just body image or how an individual feels about his or her appearance. Self-worth is influenced and shaped by our minds (thoughts and intellect), our emotions, our values, and our relationships with other people. It is important for students to recognize their uniqueness and how they can develop higher self-esteem by appreciating their own abilities and talents. 

In this activity, students will assess their own abilities and discover they possess gratitude.

This exercise is from Tamara Zentic's 13 & Counting: Does a Hamburger Really Have to Be Round? and recommended for grades 7-12.
