Product Description
The purpose of Kindness Education for Children is to teach children to be “givers of kindness” (http://www.rootsofaction.com/art-kindness-teaching-children-care/) and when they can, choose to be kind. In this lesson, students engage in active learning through games, student generated ground rules, team participation, collaborative discussion, and working with life-like scenarios. The scenarios enforce four different categories of kindness: courtesy, gratitude, giving back, and understanding. Next, students work on a week-long project where they decide if they want to be kind to another person or to themselves. At the end of the week, the students come together to report out and discuss their experiences. To keep the fun in the lesson, it ends with an active, team game!
