How can friends help each other? Explore opportunities to share while learning about human differences and similarities.
Imagine if all birthdays were on the same day. What if everyone was a good ball hitter and no one could catch. The more you get to know people, the more you learn about what makes them unique, yourself included. Here’s one way for students to share different talents with each other.
Find an interesting texture to do a rubbing, such as bricks, wicker seats, or bumpy bathmats. Place paper on the surface and rub with Crayola Twistables®. The texture will pop on the paper. Attach the textured paper to a recycled file folder with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Students lay hands on the textured paper and trace. Cut hands out with Crayola Scissors. Inside the hand shape, students outline their names in block letters using a dark color. On the fingers, students write some of their best talents, such as strong muscles (to lift heavy items) or a cheerful smile (to greet guests).
Students share writing with classmates. Who could use computer help? Who is good at tying bows? Interlace the fingers of two hands. Glue them together. Punch holes in each pair to connect them with other pairs using brass paper fasteners. Hang completed chain around the room.
