The Case of the Big Mouth Challenge  |  Season 1  |  Episode 6  |  ABC Me

When Ben mounts a competition to see who can fit a very large biscuit in their mouth like he can, Maudie is suspicious. Lesson Theme: Fitting in and making friends Ben tries to impress the kids in his class but he ends up deceiving them. Turn and talk: In a group of two or three, discuss why Ben has trouble making friends. Share your experiences of starting at a new school or trying to make friends in a new environment. Why do we sometimes try to impress people when we first meet them? What are some other ways of making friends in a new environment? Role Play: With a partner, pretend you have never met each other before! Ask each other questions and listen to the answers without interrupting at all. Games: Tell the class three things about you, but make one of them a lie. See if they can guess which one is a lie! Getting to know you treasure hunt; make a list of ten descriptions of a person and then find someone in the class for each description eg; has a sister, has lived in another country, has never tried broccoli, loves to dance, can play the piano etc etc. Extension activity: Design your own coat of arms. Create a coat of arms with 4 images that represent you. Make your unique design into a real coat of arms using paper, coloured pencils or markers and glue onto cardboard to make it strong like a shield.
