Activity Overview


Responsible decision making is the ability to make constructive and well thought out decisions about one’s own behavior and social interactions. Some steps of the responsible decision making process include identifying choices, evaluating choices, deciding on a course of action, and evaluating your decision.

In the story Too Much Glue by Jason Lifebvre, Matty makes an irresponsible decision when he decides to use way too much glue and gets it all over himself, causing chaos in his classroom. Although the story is cute and funny, it illustrates how one decision can impact many people. For this activity, students will create a 4 cell storyboard illustrating an example of someone making a decision using the 4 steps of the decision making process.
