Specifically designed for the cognitive and developmental levels of 6th grade students, this program continues Learning for Life’s integrated academic/character education emphasis by incorporating components of the K-5 programs. The 6th grade program focuses on the same 8 character traits: 1) Respect, 2) Responsibility, 3) Honesty/Trust, 4) Caring/Fairness, 5) Perseverance, 6) Self-Discipline, 7) Courage, and 8) Citizenship.
Life Skill themes, such as Physical Fitness and Conservation, are an added feature. The 61 age-appropriate lesson plans focus on topics such as “People Who Cheat,” “Being a Good Worker,” “Accepting Consequences,” “Anger-Conflict Management.” Lesson plans support a higher level of cognitive and developmental learning that is appropriate for 6th grade students.
Each lesson includes a “Family/Home Activity” to reinforce learning at home.
