To help the children think about what kind of person they want to become by the end of their lives
By creating their own tombstone epitaphs, the children will be encouraged to think about their futures and the kind of people they want to become as they grow older.
Norma Black is dead and gone, but her loving spirit still lives on.
Here lies gentle Harry James: A brother, a baker, and a son of the same.
Sean P. Driscoll lived life to the fullest. He did his best and now gets his rest.
To lessen the time needed for this activity, use a piece of construction paper for the tombstones.
If there are children in your group with special needs (physical, visual, hearing, language, or behavioral disabilities), adapt the activity accordingly.
