Activity Overview


Self-awareness is the ability to recognize one’s own feelings, strengths, weaknesses, and stressors. Self awareness is also the ability to see ourselves as unique human beings who are important and here for a purpose.

After listening to I Am Enough by Grace Byers, students will create a two cell storyboard that illustrates 2 things that make them unique. Each cell will follow the format of the book, using the words, “Like the…, I’m here to…” Students should be encouraged to think of a new simile, but may use an example from the book if the teacher chooses.

Examples from the story:

  • ”Like the sun, I’m here to shine.”
  • ”Like the voice, I’m here to sing.”
  • ”Like the champ, I’m here to fight.”
  • ”Like the heart, I’m here to love.”
  • ”Like the tree, I’m here to grow.”
  • ”Like the moon, I’m here to dream.”
