This lesson focuses on the meaning and benefits of gratitude. Students listen to a read-aloud book about a gratitude jar and brainstorm things they are grateful for right now. For their service project, students will 'deliver gratitude' to others in the school community by saying thank you and observing the reactions of the person they thanked, as well as how they feel. They will keep a gratitude jar and add to it each day; they may look at their entries on tough days. They may add to others' jars with kind words.
