FASTAP – Step 1

From A Space To A Place

Step 1: Who Am I? My Motto…


Step 1: Who Am I? My Motto…

The first activity allowed each of the students to reflect on his or her own sense of self and purpose, while learning the story of William the Conqueror and the history and values of chivalry in France and England. After investigating and identifying themselves, the children each created a personal crest, or “un blazon” in French, that illustrated his/her values, vision and motto. Through this process of self-discovery, the students learned to accept and appreciate the diverse views and beliefs of others in addition to their own. This provides the children with sustainable and creative tools that will help them become effective and considerate leaders.
