The ease of planning lessons with Learning to Give

Getting Started with the Blue Sky Activity

Are you looking for a way to help your students think outside of the box? To consider community? To put others needs before their own?
 
Blue Sky is a visioning exercise that guides participants in identifying what they care about and imagining a better world. This activity is perfect for any K-12 classroom because participants are asked to take a look at their group, neighborhood, community, state, nation, and/or the world. How does it work? After a bit of thought, participants reflect on the way it is and then imagine the way they would like it to be. This activity encourages empathy, compassion, and self-expression. It also helps participants learn to react to a negative situation with a positive action. Try it out in your classroom today!
