This video shows ways we can help each other and spread caring and compassion by observing someone needing help and acting on it. Follow up viewing the video by creating a list of all the small things people did for each other in the video.
After watching the video create an I Care chart. Any time someone sees someone helping another they can add it to the chart. Keep a count and graph the results by the different types of helping or kindness. Periodically review and discuss which types of helping are easier and which are harder and why.
Wall of Caring
Collect photographs and clippings showing participants or people in the community doing kind things for others. Display the pictures on a bulletin board, wall or other public place.
We offer books, activities, lesson plans, and ideas that teachers, parents, and students can use to promote values, attitudes and behaviors which encourage non-violent resolution of conflict, respect for human rights, democracy, intercultural understanding and tolerance.
