This lesson includes a teacher overview plus 4 videos for students to work through independently. Learn more about student access here.


Students hear the word “smart” used frequently, but what does it even mean? In this video they’ll brainstorm characters they consider “smart” and then create more specific compliments. Eventually, students will create a situation in which a group of “smart” characters must interact to solve a problem using their unique strengths.
