We often think of consequences in terms of bad things that could happen. If I go to bed early, I’ll miss this TV show and see spoilers on social media tomorrow. If I stay up too late, I’ll be tired and cranky in the morning. But usually, our choices can have both negative consequences and positive ones. And this printable will help students think ahead and consider all outcomes before making a responsible decision.
In the worksheet, students are offered challenging situations and multiple choices of how to react. Students will choose one and list the possible positive and negative consequences of their answer. Based on the consequences, they’ll need to decide if that was the best choice.
