Many students, both girls and boys struggle with self-esteem daily. In the Mental, Emotional, and Social Health unit there are many ways to help improve a student's self-esteem.
This activity would be used by displaying this image on the screen, and have students respond to the image in their health journal. The journal question could include: "What words have been said to you that decreased your self-esteem, and how did their words make you feel?"
This lesson plan is to inform students that Words DO Hurt, and they impact everyone. (A similar idea could be to use the Mean Girls clip about students raising their hands if they have ever been personally attacked by Regina George). This activity shows students that everyone gets bullied, and it needs to STOP!
