We spent time with our 6-B Character buddies this week. We worked on a project that had two purposes. First, we continued a discussion about differences by talking about eye color. Then we extended this idea by discussing how looking into someone's eyes is a way to show interest and make a connection.
We spent time practicing proper handshakes by matching the grip strength of the other shaker, displaying a friendly smile, and holding good eye contact. Then the students, in groups of Sixth Agers and Ninth Agers, walked throughout the school, introducing ourselves to adults in our community. The students filmed the project on flip cameras and recorded the eye colors of all of the adults in our community.
