Teach your students the different roles they play in bullying and what they can do to prevent it with this engaging, highly interactive PowerPoint.
The definition I've chosen for bullying in this PowerPoint is:
Someone purposely hurts someone else, over and over, and the person being bullied feels powerless, like there's nothing they can do to stop it.
Overview of PowerPoint:
•Begins by explaining how that the only way to stop bullying is if EVERYONE does their part
•Students learn the various roles they play in bullying (the person bullying, person being bullied, bystanders, and helpers)
•Students listen to a story and visualize how it would feel to be bullied.
•Advice is given for students who are bullied, students who see bullying, and students who bully others.
•Ends with students using their knowledge to determine if students in various stories are doing their part to stop bullying.
Includes Mac compatible version! (You will still need Microsoft PowerPoint)

Note to Teachers:
I have also purposely not given any suggestions of what students who are bullied should do to stop bullying other than to inform an adult. While there are strategies that may work for children, it's highly individual and it can be risky to give the wrong strategy to a student. I have included suggestions in a note to the teacher so the teacher can use the strategies they think will work best with a particular student.
I have used the word "they" as a gender neutral pronoun throughout the PowerPoints. It helps the lesson flow better than using "his or her", and seems to work for better for young children.
