Objective: I will learn how it feels to be not included

Activity:

Activity #1:

Introduce the objective.  Have students think about a time when they were left out, have students to think about how they felt.  

Use the protocol Stand Up, Hand Up, Pair Up for students to share their feeling with a partner.

They should do at least two rounds.  

Use the chart that you created with the pre-drawn umbrella and have students Shout Out the feeling words they came up with while sharing with a partner.

Write the words the students came up with on the outside of the umbrella to symbolize rain.  

Read The Big Umbrella  or listen to the youtube video.  Have the students share about how people may feel if they were included to use the big umbrella.  

Use the protocol Turn and Talk, for the students to discuss.  

Have the students share out using Raise a Hand their feelings and the teacher will record them on the underside of the umbrella.

Activity #2

Review the poster the class created, have the students discuss using the protocol Mingle, Pair and Share, about what it means to include everyone.

Show the read aloud of the book you read in the previous activity.  Pass out the worksheet attached to the bottom of this lesson.

Have students draw underneath the umbrella what it looks like to include and write a sentence on how that feels for people.  

Use the protocol Gallery Walk to share the works of art and what people have learned.
