Our Gandhi lesson plan introduces students to Mahatma Gandhi, most often referred to simply by his last name, Gandhi. Nearly every country in the world has heard of Gandhi and it is important for students to learn about his influence on the world, as well as his struggles promoting peaceful resolutions. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a group to discuss and answer questions related to Gandhi, encouraging them to connect Gandhi’s principles to their own lives. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify Gandhi, list significant contributions, and explain his influence on the world.
