8 (child): Competition and justice
- Read your Special Letter from your grandparent.
- Prepare your Special Letter:
Talk about competing, maybe in sports or exhibiting at fairs. Describe how
you feel about competing. Tell about times when you won and lost. Were you
a good or bad winner or loser? Anything you think is important!
- For your grandparent's scrapbook:
Draw a large circle on a piece of cardboard. Make a #1 in the center. Cut the
circle out and attach several colors of ribbon behind the circle with glue
or tape so they hang down from the bottom. Glue the circle to a sheet of
paper suitable for your grandparent's scrapbook. On this paper write the
reasons why you think your grandparent is #1 for you. Instead of making the
award, you could simply draw it on the paper.
- Optional Activities (Choose as many as you want to do):
- Compare Collages. Cut small angular pieces from assorted
colors of tissue paper. Glue an overlapping collage design on paper
or cardboard. Frame it. On the back of the picture explain what
improvements you made on the collage.
- Competition Improvement. Make a list of activities that
you compete in. After each item write a brief explanation of ways
you can improve in this activity.
- Mail your letter and anything else you made to your grandparent.
