(10 minutes)
My Special Talents
  • Place sample images of people using their talents around the room, or project images on the board.
  • Ask students to complete a gallery walk (in which they walk around the room and look at the images).
  • Bring everyone back together. Ask, "What did you notice about the images? What do you wonder? Is there a common theme in all the images?"
  • Explain that all of the people in the pictures were creating something or expressing their unique talents.
  • Ask, "What are some talents you saw around the room? Are some talents better than others?"
  • Discuss how each person is unique and has talents in their life. (Sometimes you aren't even aware of them!) Explain that there are many different kinds of special talents. Being a good listener, understanding others, or sharing kindness can all be special talents, too. Talents can be simple or complex.
