The sample lesson is a good example of education for peace because it seeks to promote the values of sharing, cooperation and mutual respect for the interests of others. It seeks to guide learners to be “attentive” to others.

Through this lesson, the students are guided to learn to see things from the perspectives of other people. By guiding them to imbibe the habit of attentive listening, they cultivating an important social skill which will greatly profit them in their interpersonal relations as they go through life.

Using the group method, the students will imbibe the spirit of cooperative learning, which will in turn make them learn the value and usefulness of team efforts.

This lesson could serve as education about peace at the various points when the teacher comes in to explain the impact of the students’ efforts in building a culture of peace.
