    Grades 7-9 Lesson Plan

    There is an epidemic of loneliness in our world that is affecting people young and old alike. The busier we get, the more we seem to lose the ability to interact on a personal level, resulting in many people who feel alone. This lesson invites students to be more aware of how they can befriend the lonely and what to do when they realize they need friends too.
