When teaching social studies and philosophy, students may wonder: What is the difference between morals and ethics? Are the terms interchangeable? How do norms relate to these two concepts?

Carnegie Council offers a worksheet activity for students to gain a better understanding of the definitions of norms, morals, and ethics. It also allows students to evaluate the similarities and differences of the terms.

The student worksheet activity and a teachers guide to the definitions in PDF format can be found on the top right sidebar.
