Instruct students to review the words in the handout for skills and traits. Give them a couple of minutes to look up unfamiliar words.
Allow students time to discuss with each other the skills and traits from the list that describe someone they know well.
Are there any words that they would use to describe this person that are not on the handout?
Students can follow the same instructions, finding their own personal strengths among the skills and traits from the list. Let them know that they can write words on the handout if they think of more that are not listed there.
Activity 4: Speaking
Discuss the many places where beauty can be found (Slide 15).
The following are some examples:
a beautiful building
Food / cooking or baking
A type of dance
Beautiful experiences (walking in the rain, laughter of a child, hugging someone you haven’t seen in a while)
Instruct students to use their phones to find an example of something that they find beautiful--could be picture, poetry or book, painting, sculpture, etc.--and have them share in small groups of three or four.
Challenge students to find a new example of beauty in the natural world around them. Tell them to prepare to share what they find in the following class period.
Have students share an example of beauty that they found since last class.
