Activity Overview


Students may dwell too much on what they should improve, how they should look, or how they should dress. Teenagers are vulnerable to media influence and unfortunately, media is filled with methods of tearing body image down. Students who are already experiencing distorted body images are easily and heavily influenced. If teens can focus on who they are and what they like about themselves, they may not be so susceptible to going to extremes to change it. In this activity, students will focus on what their abilities are instead of their appearances.

After the students have completed their work, you can hang them in on the board or wall in the classroom. Having an overpowering number of positive images will help create a more body-friendly environment. Some students rarely see a wall of positivity. Additionally, examples that come from peers may also mean more as opposed to something created by a teacher.
