3. Give the children the option to choose the groups they would like to work in.

B. Development-

2. We will then go around the class room and ask the children in their groups what they have written about Anti- and Pro-social behavior.

3.Introduce the children to the next two goals of the lesson.

C. Practice-

1.Media and Anti- & Pro-social behavior:
Talk to the children about the questionnaire that took place last year, which was about the effects of video games and the news. Explain the finding's of the questionnaire i.e boys think video games do have an effect on your behavior for example, if you don't win a certain game you feel cross or annoyed. Secondly explain to the children who the Y.O.S are. After this talk to the children about the questions that included media issues and the answers that were given. Lastly talk to the children about the studies that took place by psychologists to see if their is a connection between the two variables e.g. The experiment Liebert & baron conducted, where they wanted to see if watching violent programs effected a child's behavior,the results concluded that violent programs result in an increase of aggression in children.
However, this experiment was conducted in a laboratory which may be too artificial.

2.Environment and Anti- & Pro-social behavior:
Talk to the children about the Key statistics of Anti- & Pro-social behavior, talking about the number of ASBO'S issued in certain areas, the crime rates in certain areas and how there are very few statistics on Pro-social behavior (Ask the children why they think this is so). secondly talk to the children about experiments psychologists have done to see if they have found any connections between the two variables. Thirdly explain to the children the definition of conformity, explaining how conforming to the behaviors of a certain environment can effect the outcome of either your Anti- or Pro-social behavior. Lastly, again talk to the children about the Y.O.S and talk to the children about the questions that included environment issues and the answers that were given.

3.Make sure the children understand all the information given.

D. Independent Practice-

1.After children have watched the power point introduce them to the last goal of the lesson.

2.Give the children the last part of the lesson to create their poster and prepare their speech.

Checking for understanding-

1.One by one in their groups the children will show their posters to the rest of the class and explain what they have put in their poster.

2.As a class everyone will give feedback to each groups poster.


1.Ask the Children if they understood the purpose of the lesson.

2.Gain positive or negative feedback from the children on how much they enjoyed the lesson.
