Students can learn about customs from another culture in this fun goal setting activity.
In my of my courses the professor invited each of us to set a personal goal for the class using a Daruma doll worksheet. We recorded our goals for the course on the back of our "doll" and colored in one eye. At the end of the course we revisited our goals and if we were successful in accomplishing them we colored in the other eye.
I thought this was a great activity for any age to set personal goals while learning about an interesting Japanese custom. Below is a Daruma doll worksheet.
Directions: What is your goal for this class? Think, decide, and record it on the back of your “doll”. Color in one eye.
