In this lesson plan, students observe, infer and analyze images from the book (I have linked the images, so you do not need to buy the book!). The students use graphic organizers to collect data about their observations. They then choose an object that they consider their most prized possession and write an essay, speech, or movie narration script about its significance. The project can be expanded to be shared with other students around the world, promoting global understanding and empathy.

 

With teacher instructions, student resources, and links to images, this lesson plan is easy to implement in the classroom. Whether you’re a teacher looking to teach global awareness or a parent interested in fostering empathy and understanding in your child, this lesson plan is the perfect starting point.
