This packet includes several components to get students talking about the power of what we say. It includes a read aloud activity for Mr. Peabody's Apples and several cases of information that was spread quickly, and had serious consequences. There are 3 activities and ice breakers to get your kids to open up about past experiences and how they felt during this time.
In addition, there are handouts and worksheets for students to fill out after reading the information to see how the power of their words affect others. This is grades in upper elementary or middle school. You can use it the first week of school to create a classroom culture, or if you feel that your class needs it mid-year. Regardless, the lessons will be sure to have an impact.
