Kindness: Pass it On

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.

Discussion Questions:

  1. Have you ever done any of those things or similar things?
  2. How did it make you feel?
  3. Has someone helped you when you needed help?
  4. How did the boy deal with being teased by the other kids?
  5. Why is what happened at the end so powerful?
  6. Why are people stronger when they work together?

Pass it On: Video Follow up activities

I Care

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.
