Then, for each example, have them brainstorm ways of handling irresponsible people. Take the examples from activity #1, above, and turn them into role-playing situations using two kids at a time. What are the kids’ responsibilities, and what are the teacher’s responsibilities? Write about a time when you did something really responsible. Make a chart of these responsibilities and put it up on your bedroom wall (or, perhaps, the refrigerator door). At the end of the week give yourself a grade on how well you did in carrying out your responsibilities.
First, have them role-play the irresponsible behavior, and then, the responsible behavior. Make a chart of these responsibilities on the board. Note to the teacher or group leader: It might be a good idea to think of some way for the children to share the outcomes of these activities with each other.
Start your kids on the path to positive, healthful life choices.
