Our Garden of Dreams and Goals


LI: To work out the learning steps needed to reach goals and to understand how to be motivated to work hard to achieve these steps.


Activity 1:

If you were an animal - what would you be? Think about the strengths your animal might have. Complete the sentence: if I were an animal, I would be....... because....

Think about whether you have any of those strengths already. 


Activity 2: 

Look at your list of goals that you made for last lesson: make a list of what you need to do to achieve those goals. What skills will you need? What steps will you need to take to reach your goal? How can you break down your goal into manageable steps?  How will you know if you have achieved your goal? What does your goal say about you?


Decide how you are going to present your information: you could use a totem pole design- your steps on the pole, with your goal at the top for example. You could also use a ladder design - your steps on each rung, with your goal at the top.
