Social Emotional Posters Project: Learning Activities for Teen Health Curriculum


This is one of our personal favorite lessons and this project can change the way your students interact with each other! We've seen this year after year using these "Life Story Posters" activity. My students have loved this lesson too, and found it creative and engaging. It's POWERFUL!!


This 3-5 day project will have your students sharing personal stories you never realized they had, and telling things about themselves they've possibly never shared before.


It can bond students and create a class atmosphere of trust. After students do this lesson I always notice a greater empathy and sensitivity towards classmates.
