THE INVISIBLE BOY BOOK COMPANION LESSON About Empathy and Including Others

$3.00

Description

YOUR STUDENTS WILL LOVE THIS BOOK STUDY LESSON ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF INCLUDING OTHERS

Looking for an engaging lesson to teach Trudy Ludwig’s book Invisible Boy?  Check out our quiz show style  book companion lesson.  This highly engaging, interactive game show activity will have your students excited to participate.   And by the end of class, they will be begging to play more.  Your students will have tons of fun playing this SEL game.  On top of that, they get to use higher-level thinking skills as they make their way through the different categories.  All the while learning about empathy, being a good friend, and inclusion.

 

THE GAME SHOW CATEGORIES ARE:

  • ACT IT OUT: teams act out / role play the challenge prompt.
  • TRUE or FALSE: teams decide whether the statement is true or false.
  • SKETCH IT: teams quickly draw their answers.
  • IMAGINE IF: teams answer “Imagine If” questions, using their imagination & problem solving skills.
  • RISK: teams take a “risk” when they choose this category, since the type of question and/or challenge is not revealed until chosen.

 

WHAT’S SO UNIQUE ABOUT THIS LESSON?

The Game Show format is hands-on and experiential.  Not only does it encourage reflective, critical thinking, it is designed for students to show off and build on their smarts in different ways.  Plus, the questions and challenges are 100% customizable so if you like, you can edit them to better fit your specific needs. Best of all, it’s super low-prep, perfect for all you busy counselors and teachers!

 

WAYS YOU CAN USE THIS SEL ACTIVITY:

  • Social emotional learning classroom lessons
  • Small group counseling
  • Distance Learning classes
  • Bibliotherapy
  • Teletherapy
  • School Counseling guidance lessons

Given that the GAME SHOW takes 40-60 minutes to play, and sometimes we just don’t have that much time….or that the Invisible Boy companion lesson works best projected on a large screen, and sometimes the technology breaks down….or that there are days when we walk into the classroom and just know that a whole classroom game is not going to fly that day….and sometimes students need more quiet, reflective activities……I have included more than 6 additional formats that do not require the use of the internet.

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO PLAY THE GAME SHOW?

  • If you can, use the Google Slides Invisible Boy Companion Lesson or PowerPoint game on a Promethean White Board or projector
  • If using for distance learning, all players need internet access.
  • Want to go screen-free? No problem! This Game Show also comes with printable task cards with the same prompts as the Game Show challenges.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Trudy Ludwig’s book, Invisible Boy, is not included in this lesson.

I loved the variety of prompts, led to some really great discussions with students. Very helpful way to apply lessons from The Invisible Boy with older elementary students.

I use your resources for the educational component to my daughter’s tennis academy. The student-athletes enjoy the various worksheets and activities we’ve used and we see the progress being made in their character development! Keep the ideas coming!!!
