Heres a sample obect lesson from the lesson on gratitude! What a great way to teach kids to be grateful!
Pick a student to come to the front of the room. Have them take off one shoe and put a small pebble inside of their shoe. Have the student then put their shoe back on. Then give them a piece of candy to eat immediately. With the pebble in their shoe, and candy in their mouth, have them walk around the room. When they are finished, ask them which experience they noticed more. Would the candy have been more enjoyable to eat without the pebble as a distraction? Explain that when we are ungrateful and complain, it is like we have a pebble in our shoe. We don’t fully experience all our blessings, and we don’t notice them as easily.
