Chapter 7: Revisiting the Circle of Life

This Chapter 7: Revisiting the Circle of Life lesson plan also includes:

Scholars revisit the Circle of Life to examine positive character traits—mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional. Pupils discuss how those character traits could help them make responsible decisions and not contract HIV/AIDS. Learners get crafty by making a collage that features their goals in life. After sharing finished products, peers obtain a certificate of completion.
