Step by Step:

Step One: Brainstorm with students ways that they can display good citizenship. Brainstorm words or phrases that depict good citizenship.

Step Two: Draw the peace symbol on the board and ask the students if they know what it means. Remind students that they can use their fingers to show the peace symbol.
