Character in Action



The class discussed what the word courage means, and how it relates to having a positive character. We read "Dare to Have Courage", a story about a frog who learned that he was different from his friends because he didn’t know how to swim or skate like they did. The frog decided to be courageous and overcome his differences and fears by learning how to swim and skate. His friends admired his courage to try new things. The students then completed a color-by-number coloring page of flags and children in native dress from countries all over the world. The goal of the lesson was to encourage children to be different and to embrace differences in others.
