Product Description
In this classroom project, children learn that we don't always see someone else's struggles and become more aware that they have the power to lift up another or add to someone's pain. They practice lifting up another and developing empathy.
Rationale: With the rise of social media and video games as a source of interaction, children have become less connected to the emotions and struggles of others. They have become de-sensitized. Young children and teens are egocentric and don’t naturally think outside of their own needs. It is easier to hurt another if we don’t see their face when we hurl insults. The empathy experiment brings the burdens of others to the surface by having each child take on common issues and wear them on their person so that other students become more aware that we all have issues that we deal with.
