If you need an activating strategy for an empathy mini lesson this resource is great to use. In this PowerPoint the students select one of the four shoe boxes and as a class you read the scenario and discuss what you could do as a "bystander" and how you would feel if "you were in his/her shoes." The PowerPoint contains four scenarios. Thank you. This was used in a 3rd grade classroom, but would be appropriate in lower or an upper elementary setting as well.
