Five “Handy” Kindness Rules
We are a more caring and kind society when we follow rules.
The learners will generate a classroom list of kindness rules.
The teacher and the students, will brainstorm a list of kindness rules for the classroom. From this list the class will select the top five “handy” kindness rules. Once the list has been established, the teacher creates a hand template with the rules written on each finger. The handprints may be displayed in a variety of ways.
- Large—classroom size
- Small—desk size
- Bulletin board idea—oversized handprint, large enough to hold all of the individual students’ hand-prints (painted or construction
Social Studies Objectives:
