12 Ideas and Resources to Inspire Students to Show Kindness

“There’s no such things as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” – Scott Adams

This Wednesday, November 13th, is World Kindness Day! The resources below will help your students understand what kindness means and why showing kindness is important to making the world a better place. The resources below allow your students to reflect on what kind acts others have show them and how this has made them feel or transformed their mood and day. The resources also help students understand that one small act of kindness, like smiling at a stranger, can lead to much larger acts of kindness. If you do not get to these ideas this week, then try an activity anytime. Teaching students how to be kind human beings is a lesson that can be taught all year long.
