Developing Empathy

(View Complete Item Description)

When we put ourselves in another person’s shoes, we are often more sensitive to what that person is experiencing and are less likely to tease or bully them. By explicitly teaching students to be more conscious of other people’s feelings, we can create a more accepting and respectful school community.

This lesson helps children to recognize that it is essential to tell a trusted adult if something online makes them feel angry, sad, or scared. Students learn that other people can sometimes act like bullies when they are online. They will explore what cyberbullying means and what they can do when they encounter it.

Finally, they use their knowledge to create a simple tip sheet on cyberbullying in their journal.
