Character Education

= Preview Document = Member Site Document = Pin to Pinterest
  • This unit uses the story of the miller, his son, and their donkey as a foundation for talking about fitting in. With imaginative writing and drawing prompts (and a word search!), as well as comprehension questions, this is a fun introduction to Aesop AND a solid lesson on character education and critical thinking skills. Available at four levels. Common Core: RL.3.2

  • This short lesson doesn't provide answers, but provides the vocabulary for discussing ethical questions.
  • The review questions with this reading comprehension (one page each of "Bloom's Taxonomy") are helpful for critical thinking development.

  • [member-created document] This sample was made with the abcteach word search puzzle tool.
  • Part of the abcteach character-education series, which introduces children to challenging life skills decisions and asks them, "What would you do if this happened to you?" This one addresses misdirected anger.
