Instructional Ideas

  • Brainstorm qualities of a good friend as a class before starting this activity to help kids understand what types of words they should think of
Classroom Considerations

  • You may need to blow up the balloons first, depending on the age of learners
  • The optional take-home slip text is specific to a program, and likely won't make sense for your group
  • Assign a recorder for each group to write down all the qualities that group comes up with so that you can share them afterward (also good for differentiation if you know of a student who needs a physical adaptation)
Pros

  • Easy activity that will generate lots of discussion
Cons

  • None
