Lesson Plan

Self-Control

A instructional activity uses a stop light to assist young scholars in using self-control. After the class defines self-control and how it boosts responsibility and independence, they practice a breathing exercise to reflect on their behavior. Learners play a game of "Red Light, Green Light" and create a stop light out of construction paper.
