Activity Overview


Kids are very aware of the troubles facing their school, community, and the country. They hear about issues in the media and from friends and families. Sometimes thinking about the many problems humans face can feel insurmountable. However, students can be encouraged that "any act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." We are all together in the effort to make a more perfect world for future generations. Teachers can facilitate a discussion about ways in which students can talk about and tackle issues of injustice at home, within their school, in the wider community, and beyond. Then, they will create a storyboard that reflects ideas on how to fight injustices in all forms.
