I Am Unique from Peppy Pals

At this station you’ll draw a picture of yourself and one of your best friends.

Goal

To spot similarities and differences and to see that the differences render us UNIQUE. Differences should be associated with something positive, there is only ONE of ME. Understanding similarities and differences is a part of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) that will help your child become better at solving problems or arguments, both in school and at home. It will help your child to better relate to other people and to see things from different point of views.

Resources

Instructions

  1. Use paper and pencil and draw a picture of yourself and your best friend.
  2. Ask: What things make you and your friend similar/different?
  3. Draw something that you like about a friend, that is quite different from you.

Discussion

  • What does it mean to be unique?

  • Is it good/bad to be unique?
  • What would it be like if everybody looked the same, acted the same, had the same name?

Extensions
