Belonging to a Community - Grade 3 Lesson Plan
About This Lesson
In this lesson, students will explore what they already know about communities and develop an understanding that accepting others for who they are is the key to a successful community. Through reflection and a creative mapping activity, students will see that, even though commonalities bring people together, it is the differences people bring to a community that makes it special.
By the end of this activity, students will:
- Define different types of communities they belong to;
- Understand that belonging to a community means respecting differences
- Identify various members of their school community and explain why they are important.
