Activity Overview


Sometimes students need to stop and listen to what their friends are really saying. Being surrounded by positive people can be beneficial and motivate you. On the other hand, if you’re around negative people, they could bring you down or begin to negatively affect your thoughts.

In this activity, students will create a storyboard illustrating the things they hear from their friends and how that makes them feel. These things do not necessarily have to relate to the student in question. Hopefully your students will produce all positive cells because we want them to have positive people around them. For those who do not, the important piece of their storyboard is their reflection.
