What matters

Nothing matters than...
A fresh start requires a fresh and creative activity. Seventh grade learners kicked start the unit by creating a poster-sized collage. This activity is linked to the unit “Nothing Else Matters". They were required to bring in pictures of what matters to them most .After they brought in their pictures, we glued them to the cardboard poster and created a collage of "What Matters". Then, we engaged in a discussion that helped them express and further explain their picture choices. Seventh graders indeed inked their thoughts while creating their masterpiece...We were glad to hear that what matters to most of them is “family “that ranked first among other topics.
What matters for us is that our learners engage in group work activities and have space to express their thoughts and ideas in creative ways, and be able to acknowledge that there are a lot of things that matter to their lives even small details.
