Activity Overview

As students are navigating their middle school years, it's important for them to recognize that their differences are what makes them unique and that they should be proud of the ways they "stand out" from their peers. Recognizing these things will also help them understand that everyone else also has things that make them stand out! Teaching this in conjunction with reading Wonder is especially helpful, as it is easy for students to make connections as they read.

Have students create a poster about themselves. What is it that makes them stand out? What about them is unique? How do these things help them "choose kind" when interacting with others? What precepts do they live by? This may include culture, ability, interests, and friends.
