Quotes are a great way to start the conversation in your class about kindness and compassion. I love using quotes because it ties in critical thinking skills, language arts, and social studies. Also, I find students LOVE talking about the BIG issues in life.
This freebie includes five quote pages. Each page includes the quote, a place to draw, and a prompt to write. The quotes are from Martin Luther King Jr., Maya Angelou, Aesop, Mother Teresa, and the Dalai Lama.
Talk about the quotes with your students, and have them think of ways that the quotes can apply to their lives and to the classroom. Then, have students illustrate and write about the quotes.
This is a simple activity for whole class, small groups, or independent practice.
