Looking for Good Citizenship Lesson Plans and Assessments?

Citizenship is a large part of what students learn in school and how they act in the community. Being a good citizen benefits the community, country, and fellow citizens. Helping others, respecting the law, and being responsible are characteristics of being a good citizen.

With social-emotional learning being such a critical instructional need in today’s schools, we’ve been building a library of amazing SEL lessons, activities, and brief assessments to help you implement character-building activities into the classroom.

This set of exit tickets gives you a quick and easy way to assess students’ understanding of the different traits needed to be a good citizen. They are easily printed, cut apart, and handed out in the classroom. They provide you with a wealth of knowledge about what your students are taking in.
