Activity Overview

Each of us is unique in many ways, and it is important for children to embrace their individuality and be proud of it. Celebrating their own uniqueness also allows them to recognize the uniqueness of others and better understand how each of us is different and special in our own way. For this activity, students will create a 3 cell spider map that reflects on their own character and what makes them unique. Depending on student ability or teacher preferences, students can include a description, or just use an I Am statement and an illustration.
