In order for students to build self esteem they need to know who they are and what is important and unique to themselves personally. Students also need to have a concrete way in which to express their value. These activities give students a chance to reflect on who they are and with some lessons, share that information in a fun way with the rest of the class. The following lesson plans are available for you to utilize in the classroom.
