The Character Tree is a new online resource for character development that uses engaging discussions, real-life examples from history, role modeling, and hands-on materials to emphasize positive character traits.
The free subscription provides access to a collection of videos suitable for first and second grade students. The videos feature puppets asking and answering questions, as well as discussions about prominent figures. The lessons are standards-aligned and each comes with a teacher’s guide and printable resources for students.
Teachers and parents can sign up to access the videos for free through the end of the school year by visiting: https://charactertree.com/sign-up/#join.
