Gratitude Counseling Activity: Gratitude Lesson for Community Building
Gratitude Counseling Lesson - This gratitude classroom counseling lesson plan will help students in grades 4-5 share the things they are grateful for and build a more supportive community! Students learn the benefits of gratitude and then discuss what it means to "be a rainbow in someone else's cloud." This lesson encourages students to learn about each other's values, strengths, and uniqueness so that when others are in need of support, they already know how to be there.
