Downloadable Activity: Values (13 & Counting: Does a Hamburger Really Have to Be Round?)

Classroom Activity for Teaching Students the Social Skill of "Clarifying Values and Beliefs"

Tamara Zentic, MS


This activity will allow students to clarify their values and beliefs by starting out the lesson listing the top 7 to 10 most important things in their lives. Once they think of what they are thankful for, they can build on that to identify their values. Throughout the mind-mapping activity, students will practice zest by showing enthusiasm and will learn to process the concept of gratitude. 

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