Respect, and Responsibility
Students learn to respect others' property by rating the severity of a variety of damaging acts.
respect, property, responsibility, public, consequences, punishment
In this lesson, students use a tagboard "thermometer" to rate the severity of 15 statements describing situations in which a person damages the property of another.
Alternative idea: Provide students with a work sheet on which are drawn 15 thermometers with a scale of 1 to 10. Let students respond to each situation by coloring a thermometer on their work sheets.
Following are a few examples of the kinds of property-related damages introduced in this activity:
This lesson includes follow-up activities.
