Acts of Kindness for Kids

We know that acts of kindness and small gestures can bring joy to others, and by helping others, we in turn benefit especially in these stressful, uncertain times. In fact, by thinking about and doing things to help others, we can actually reduce our own anxiety.

In this activity, you will help your students understand how kindness benefits everyone! It is made up of two parts:

Instructions: Print out (or send) the brainstorming worksheet and cut-outs worksheet (above) for your students. And along with the worksheets, you may want to share your thoughts and ideas about what kindness may look like and how being kind to others will make them feel.

You can have your students add the brainstorming worksheet to their social emotional learning journal or you can use this lesson as a stand alone activity.
