K-1 students are developing a stronger sense of identity within a group than ever before. They are learning how to speak up for themselves and to express their own special interests and style. This delightfully growing sense of self-awareness allows students to be active experimenters with friendships and interactions within the classroom community. WE ALL HAVE POWER celebrates students developing social and emotional strengths.
Many young students are fascinated with superheroes and their powers. We can all be IM4U superheroes with the power to do good things for our community. What would those powers be? In this activity, students discuss positive actions or powers they can use to speak up for themselves and others, and use art materials to draw their superpower image.
Students listen to the Speak Up song, discuss and visually represent superpowers that they have to make positive change for themselves and others.
