Today I’d like to share with you an idea of a lesson which I particularly like as it allows students to learn more about themselves and their priorities. I first came across the concept of ‘The Jar of Life’ at the psychological workshop about two years ago and it made a huge impression on me. I decided to share it with my students and every now and then I would come to the classroom carrying a jar, golf balls, a bag of pebbles and some sand. Now, I can use a video from youtube, but I guess a live presentation is more interesting for students, so have a go at it!
You’ll find the photocopiable handouts below.
