Lesson Plan

Doing Our Share

This Doing Our Share lesson plan also includes:

Whether at home or in the classroom, each member of a community has certain responsibilities they must tend to. With the help of the children's story Piggybook by Anthony Browne, kids learn how to assign jobs in a fair and safe manner that meets the needs everyone involved. Children apply this understanding as they divide up household chores between the members of real or imaginary families. Finally, kids think of a new job they could perform at home or in class, monitoring their success with the new responsibility over the course of a week. A great series of lessons that develop basic, but essential, life skills in primary grade students.
