A Collection of EQ Lesson Plans
for 5th-8th graders
EQ (Emotional Intelligence) AKA Character Education, helps students to understand their own feelings and be respectful of the feelings, ideas and opinions of others. Building EQ skills is also about taking the time to think, reason and reflect before making decisions.
The objectives of my lesson plans, are to:
- Encourage healthy relationships between students and a caring adult
- Build a positive network of friends for every child
- Create a supportive and caring group of students within your classroom
These lessons plans are here for you to use with your students in any way you like. Good luck and please let me know how it goes!
