These lesson plans were created by students in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Philosophy Department’s Pre-College Philosophy class.

This lesson for sixth and seventh grade introduces students to ethical discussions and dilemmas. It uses two well known scenarios, the Prisoner’s Dilemma and Plato’s Ring of Gyges. Lessons stress a deep understanding of community and our obligations.
This sixth grade lesson plan will focus on identifying the qualities of a good/positive friendship. Students begin by drawing a representation of good friendship. They will then work in groups and as a class to discuss what characteristics make up a good friendship, and what characteristics do not.
