This School Scavenger Hunt will help students focus on doing good deeds or random acts of kindness for others. You can choose to give a reward for having all the good deeds complete by the goal date, or choose to have the reward be feeling good for making others feel good!
In my final year teaching, I worked the car line at the end of the day. The second week of school, a crazy rainstorm hit just as dismissal was starting. I have never seen rainstorms like I have in the south – it was POURING. Soaked to the bone, water filling up your shoes pouring.
We were scrambling trying to get kids to their cars as dry as possible with a few golf umbrellas.
We had a new principal that year (my fifth principal in four years of teaching). And I’ll never forget my new principal coming out to help us.
She didn’t have to do that.
There were enough staff members assigned to car duty to get the job done. She could have stayed dry in her office, I know that’s what my previous principals would have done. But she came out and got soaked with us.
That act of kindness set the tone for the rest of the year, that she was the kind of principal that would be in the trenches with us.
There’s no telling what simple random acts of kindness will do for someone else. So encourage your students to focus on completing some with our School Scavenger Hunt.
