Lesson Plans

Here you will find free lesson plans and activities to help you incorporate ALSF into your school day.  These resources involve both academic skills that align with core standards, and character-building activities to strengthen students’ positive traits and interpersonal skills. 

Character Development Lessons and Activities

The goal of these Character Development lessons and activities is to instill a sense of generosity, kindness, and compassion in children and teens that they can carry with them to adulthood. They have been written for a younger audience, but most can easily be adapted for middle or high school students.
