The purpose behind this activity is to teach students the importance of small improvements. Getting 1% better every day in one aspect of your life will have a significant impact after 30 days, 100 days, 365 days. The small improvements that we accomplish will build the foundation for reaching our long term goals.
Play the video “1% Better Every Day” by James Clear to introduce this idea to students.
Reiterate to students that small changes can have a big impact in a person’s life.
Ask your students to identify 2-3 habits they want to get 1% better at and record their responses on FLIPGRID. In their video students should also discuss why they want to improve on these 2-3 habits specifically and what steps they are going to take to achieve this moment.
Alternatively, assign the 1% Better handout for students to fill out.
