Self Esteem for Students

Lesson Plans by Patrick Healey

When children have high self esteem, they are able to make positive decisions that better themselves. Low self esteem may lead to more destructive decisions. These decisions may be as little as not joining a team/club, or as risky as crumbling under peer pressure. The following activities will help students understand the value of self esteem, build a positive self concept, and set goals.
