Product Description
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. It is easier to hurt another if we don’t see their face when we hurl insults. Young children and teens are egocentric and don’t naturally think outside of their own needs. The empathy experiment brings the burdens of others to the surface by having each child take on common issues and display them so that students become more aware that we are all dealing with something. In this classroom project, children learn that we don't always see someone else's struggles and develop awareness that their actions have the power to lift up another or add to someone's pain. During part two, they practice lifting up another with positive statements and developing empathy. There is also a pledge to see something/say something.
