In this Christmas lesson and activities, students will work on building empathy and perspective taking skills by standing in someone else’s shoes. Activities focus on building student understanding that people feel, think, experience, and act differently in reaction to the same situations.
Students are provided with engaging characters, relatable situation cards, and a writing and drawing activity where they have to think about another person’s perspective and understand why.
This activity is perfect for small group counseling, classroom social-emotional learning lessons, and even for parents who want to work on empathy with their child.
