Project Rangeet: Paper Bully
Our words and actions can have a lasting impact on others. This impact can be positive or negative.
In Paper Bully, our partners at Project Rangeet allow children to see in a physical way the lasting impact of their words/actions and start to think about how they can both think of others’ feelings and become upstanders who make the world a better place.
- plain paper
- Let's each crumple up a piece of paper.
- Now let's try to flatten out our piece of paper.
- What happens? Can you make the paper go back to its original state?
- People are a little bit like paper! When you say or do unkind things to them, it can hurt. People will always remember being bullied. They can be resilient, recover, and learn from the experience — but bullying can affect people just like crumpling can affect paper.
- Let's think of ways we can help rather than hurt. How can we help prevent bullying and stand up for people who are the victims of bullying?
