Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Make two copies of Leader Resource 1. Keep one copy intact and cut apart the other to make the cards.

Description of Activity

This activity helps participants integrate ways to validate the first Principle by engaging them to act out events that could happen in their everyday lives.

Invite a volunteer to choose a card. Read the card aloud and invite the child to choose someone to help them act out the card. Be sure participants use respectful words when inviting someone to help them. After each role play, lead the group to process with the questions on that card.

Including All Participants

Some first graders read and would like the opportunity to read their own cards.
