Creating a Respectful Environment

Students create a piece of art to represent themselves. They sit in a circle and pass the art from person to person, each time tearing or wrinkling the art noticeably. When the art reaches its owner, students observe the tears and consider how teasing and disrespect can have the same effect.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
