Leadership Teacher Resources

Student leadership may be considered a 21st-century skill, but leadership skills never go out of style. Our Lesson Planet teacher team has curated, reviewed, and rated high-quality resources for you to teach the youth of today how to be the leaders of tomorrow.

Start leadership lessons early with a kindergarten lesson on how to be a good leader in the classroom. A unit on leadership and team-building is inspiring for elementary and secondary students alike, and a teen leadership course fosters goal-setting skills and time management for high schoolers.

Take a note from historical leaders with a lesson that analyzes the leadership qualities of various presidents, or an activity that divides past administrations into four leadership types. Older learners will appreciate a video that outlines the complex leadership positions in Congress.
