We Are All Connected: Interdependence
  • Gather students into a circle, either seated in chairs or on the floor.
  • Remind students about the circle guidelines they created: the raised hand attention signal and talking piece (every week each student rotates and brings in a talking piece that means something to them).
  • Have the student introduce the talking piece for the week.
  • Welcome each student into the circle using the talking piece (each student welcomes another student in the circle).
  • Share that today during circle time they will be learning about how we are all connected to the web of life.
