Students explain the words and actions they see leaders use and list examples of how they might model leadership at home and in school.
Leadership comes in many forms.
From the most visible people in our communities, like the police or the mayor to the unsung participants who make important and lasting impacts, students should be challenged to think about how leaders shape our lives with their words and actions.
This leadership worksheet is best used as an independent study as part of a social-emotional learning lesson on leadership. It can also be completed with a guided small-group or done as a whole class activity by projecting the worksheet via smartboard.

Got fast finishers or students who need more practice? Here are a few ideas to help you change the difficulty level of this worksheet.
Take Leadership for Students Even Further
For a bigger challenge, students might be asked to draw pictures using this resource and to write 4 to 6 sentences explaining their response in detail on a separate piece of lined paper, for each question on the resource page.
Scaffolding for Struggling Students
Students who are struggling with this concept might be supported by brainstorming 2 to 3 words that exemplify leadership and having them write those words at the top of their page. They will then use the words to draw pictures (instead of writing complete sentences or bullet-pointed phrases) to answer the questions listed.
Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students
Because student responses will vary, an answer key is not provided for this resource.
With a small group, make this worksheet more sustainable by printing a few copies on cardstock and slipping them into dry-erase sleeves. Students can record their answers with a dry-erase marker, then erase and reuse.
