Lesson 6 : Truthfulness

A big huge thank you to Liz Arrambide for posting the great idea of a puppet show for this lesson on ‘truthfulness’ on the http://www.ruhiresources.org website! We had so much fun with it. 🙂

It is based on the lesson’s quote “Truthfulness is the foundation of all human virtues”. One of the 2 characters is building a sculpture, out of ‘virtue-blocks’, because she is tired of people not telling the truth. A friend walks past and after finding out what she is doing, questions whether truthfulness is the best virtue to be the foundation of the house-like sculpture. He tries out a few others, but non of them seem to give the same stability to the sculpture.

They both end up building the sculpture together and the friend is convinced, while we need all those other virtues too – truthfulness is the foundation of all human virtues.

My wonderful assistant helped me prepare the puppet show to perform for the children – and then we all made puppets, out of simple cardboard rolls.

We even had some impromptu puppetshows at the end of class… 🙂
