Benefiting Students

Helping students identify the size of their problem is a big part of self-regulation and the first step in getting them to react appropriately to life's challenges. Being able to put problems into perspective will help students both in and outside of the classroom.

At a minimum, this activity will help students understand that problems come in different sizes and should be reacted to appropriately.

Saving Time

This activity is ready to use and designed to be no-prep.

Who is this Lesson Designed For?

This activity is designed for students grades 1-5 but the slides are completely editable and can be changed to fit a wide variety of student needs.
