A sense of belonging is absolutely necessary for our health and well-being. The fragile “roots of belonging” are planted and nurtured in the elementary years. It is a crucial time for students to feel their place and purpose in the school group. From these roots, the whole child blooms into a contributing member of community. IM4U challenges all of us to seek out our purpose and experience that purpose in our lives.
Students watch the Let’s Stick Together puppet skit video and explore the concept of purpose by looking at a common object in many different ways and considering its many purposes.
