After viewing the virtual presentation, your students will need to reflect on everything they learned. We created a lesson plan with activities for the kids to dig deep and think about how they can bring about change in their community.
But we didn't stop there.
This year, we're providing free monthly curriculum to every teacher who signs up for the presentation. Every first Monday of the month, you'll receive an email with a link to Google Drive folders full of lesson plans, activities, worksheets, and reflections for grades 4-5th, 6th-8th, and 9th-10th. Perfect for students in the traditional or virtual classroom. Check out our monthly themes here!
HENRY CLAY SCHOOL
“Students are able to fully identify if behaviors are bullying or not. They are really seeing students at the heart, versus physical appearances that usually foster their bullying behavior.”
FRANK MADLA ELEMENTARY
San Antonio, TX
“I have heard kids use the phrase "don't be a monster" to other students who are saying hurtful things, so they remember the presentation. Students being able to see Frank created a connection and made it easier for them to remember what it was about. Very creative."
GEISLER MIDDLE SCHOOL
Walled Lake, MI
“I really feel the presentation sends a powerful message about needing to be kind and treating others the way you want to be treated. After the assembly students can also use the terminology about being an upstander and what that means and looks like."
