Social Studies: Empathy for Living Things

Learners, after listening to a reading of Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree," use Bloom's Taxonomy to discuss their reactions. By writing letters to the tree, they demonstrate their feelings of empathy and share them with the class. Finally, students compile their writings into a class book. among other activities, they write letters about the meaning of friendship and complete Venn diagrams about themselves and their friend.
