LRH: Good Sportsmanship Lesson Plan - Lesson 4


Lesson 4: Fairness

Memory verse:
Leviticus 19:15a  Be fair, no matter who is on trial. (CEV)

Definition:
1a. Having or exhibiting a disposition that is free of favoritism or bias; impartial: a fair mediator.
1b. Just to all parties; equitable: a compromise that is fair to both factions.
2. Consistent with rules, logic, or ethics: a fair tactic.
What does it mean to be fair?

  • It means to have the same rules for everyone.  If Billy can’t take an extra turn because he landed on green, then neither can the rest of the players.  If landing on 100 gives Adam 100 points, then every player that lands on 100 gets 100 points.  If Steve cannot jump his own playing piece, then no one else can either.
  • Sometimes we want to favor, or be extra nice to, our friends.  That’s ok, but not when it means that we leave other players out.  Being fair means that everyone plays by the same rules.  When the game is fair, and everyone is playing fair, then you can know for sure that whoever wins, really won the game.
Just joining us?  Start with Lesson 1

Don't stop - there's lots more good stuff...
