Good Choice vs. Poor Choice Puzzles

Teaching students the difference between good choices and poor choices is crucial, especially at a young age. Making sure that students can make good decisions for themselves helps in countless ways as they grow older. I like to use a variety of tools to get the ideas across for my little guys. I especially enjoy this activity with second and third grade students. At this age, they really like to cut, glue and complete hands on activities. It’s a bit harder to keep their attention when we are just talking, they need something highly interactive.  
I like to use these two activities to keep the conversation flowing, the lessons learning and the good choices coming.

I usually complete these over the course of two separate sessions.

Activity #1: Good Choice Puzzles
Students cut apart the good choice or poor choice puzzle pieces.
They separate the pieces based on if they think the situation is a good choice or if they think it is a poor choice and place the puzzle pieces in the appropriate spots.
They glue the pieces in place and can then step back and admire their completed worksheet.

Activity #2: Good Choice vs. Poor Choice Cut & Glues

Much like the puzzle activity, students start by cutting apart their pieces.
They then pick up each piece one by one and decide if that situation would be classified as a good choice or a poor choice.
Once they make their choice, they glue the piece in place until all 20 situations as snug in their proper spots.

After completing these two activities, students are sure to have a clearer understanding of the difference between a good choice and a poor choice.
