Background For Teachers:
This lesson will give students an opportunity to explore their own definition of 'valuable' and make a choice as to what is most treasured to them.
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Take some of the objects out of the bag, look at them, name them and sigh over them. (Add more drama here.)
Continue reciting the verse:
Repeat the student lines a few times so the students will be able to say their part during lesson. (Or write them on the board.)
Instruct students that they can choose one item that you could take out of your bag. After they have chosen an object, the students recite the lines from the poem adding the name of the object. After each item has been chosen, give some reasons why you MUST keep that particular item. Repeat this 3 to 4 times.
Review the material in the background section of this lesson (above). Discuss with the students the difference between essential and non-essential items. Have students generate a list of the items they would like to take with them if they were going to move.
Discuss the different ways things are valuable to people. Have students classify the items on their lists monetary, sentimental or personal valuables. (A venn diagram is useful for this as some items are valuable for more than one reason.)
Students will now make a choice as to what item they would take with them if they were leaving their home and could only take ONE item. Emphasize that all items needed for survival are already included in the wagon. They will be choosing one of their 'prized possessions' to carry with them.
Set the criteria for their choice:
All choices are acceptable. Everyone needs and wants different things, for different reasons.
