Gossip is like Feathers (Mr. Peabody's Apples)

I recently did a lesson with my fifth graders on Rumors and Gossip.  This is a 2-3 day lesson depending on how much time you have with the class.  Side note:  my principal evaluated me doing this lesson...she loved it:)
Product Details
Lesson 1:  
Read Mr. Peabody's Apples to the class.  You can purchase the book HERE.  
Pre-Reading and Post-Reading Questions:  HERE

Lesson 2-3:  PowerPoint, Activity, Discussion
This is the presentation that I created for this lesson:  PowerPoint Presentation: Mr. Peabody's Apples: Rumors and Gossip
Activity:  The rules for the activity are in the PowerPoint.  I found the activity HERE.  I changed the activity in that I had the students try to put the glitter back into the original container.  

You can also use Mr. Peabody's Apples to teach trustworthiness.  Great lesson idea HERE and HERE.
