After reading the story called “Six Blind Men and the Elephant,” have the students answer the following questions. Link to the lesson plan included at the end of the article.
Students answer the following questions:
LIST the parts of the elephant’s body that the blind people felt and as a result, how they interpreted what an elephant is like.
RETELL this story IN YOUR OWN WORDS.
DETERMINE whether any of these blind people were either telling the truth or were telling a lie.
DEBATE how the blind people perceived the elephant and COMPARE and CONTRAST that to the way that we perceive what was meant by people’s facial expressions, body language, tone of voice, volume of voice, and the way the people verbally express themselves.
GENERATE and PLAN a way that we can figure out what the facial expressions, body language, tone and volume of voice, and words really mean when a person appears to be sad, mad, confused, crabby, etc
You think someone appears to be angry with either you or someone else. You ask them about it and they claim that nothing is wrong. EVALUATE what should be your next step.
