We Are Unique - Yet Also Alike

Sixth graders compare their lives to trees and make connections between the two, consider how trees are metaphors for people, and draw and label trees to represent themselves. Students then read brief stories, fables or nursery rhymes, discuss how stories are passed down from generation to generation, write stories to accompany Robert Harris painting, and create clay figurines. Finally, 6th graders listen to music from around world. Four lessons on one page.
