Unit Plan

Learning area 1: Who am I?

Five activities encourage scholars to dream big and celebrate the similarities and differences of those around them. Learners take part in two active practices that showcase how their peers are the same and different. Worksheets challenge pupils to answer questions about themselves, create a timeline, and write about their hopes and dreams. Informative slides accompany discussion.
