This unit is part of a BUNDLE that includes TEN units on character education at a discounted price.
Lesson 1-What Does Compassion Mean?
Your class will watch a quick Youtube video about a group of friends that show compassion to an elderly neighbor, and then you'll work together to define compassion and give examples. Then students will draw and write about showing compassion.
Lesson 2-What Things Tug At Your Heart?
After discussing compassion, you'll spend some time discussing what things your studnets are especially compassionate about. It's important for students to know how to show compassion in many situations, but we all have things that are especially close to our hearts. They'll do a quick craft and label things that "tug at their heart." It's a great time to discuss problems in our world and how we can help.
Lesson 3-How Can We Show Compassion To People We Know
You'll go over lots of scenarios that could happen to close friends and family and students will work in small groups to come up with ways to show compassion. For example, students will figure out how to support a friend who's parents are getting a divorce.
Lesson 4-How Can We Show Compassion to Strangers and Animals?
In this lesson, you'll discuss a few major problems in our communities and how we can work together to help! You'll show photographs of people in various situations and talk about how to show compassion and help them. Ideas include making cards, donating old clothes, etc. Then students will draw and write about one idea they have for each situation. I only chose a couple scenarios that students would likely be familiar with. However, you could easily pull up a few stock images of different things and have the same discussion if there is something specific you want to talk to your students about!
