Invite your students to contribute to their community of caring! Gather memorable symbols of qualities such as honesty, generosity, courtesy, respect, kindness, and gratitude.
Begin a class discussion about how people who live in caring communities treat each other. During the discussion, make a list of student constributions on a classroom white board using Crayola Dry Erase Markers. Ask students to brainstorm traits of effective, caring team members, at school, at home, and around the world. Chart these on the white board for easy student access.
Organize students in pairs in preparation for creating a unique display to remind others to care! Provide students with Crayola Ultra-Clean Markers, construction paper, and an empty tissue box. Decorate the paper with markers. Then cut construction paper to fit the sides of the tissue box. Glue the paper to the box.
Distribute at least 6 index cards to each pair of students. Invite teams to design colorful index cards with words and symbols of at least six of the traits on the class list. Create 3-D symbols with Crayola Model Magic® compound. Use them to add dimension to the cards, to decorate the box, or as stand-alone sculptures. Find out how these traits are expressed in several other languages and cultures. For example, students could sculpt the Japanese symbol of honesty (shoujiki).
Arrange student displays in a way that captures the attention of others. If possible, arrange for a show at a local library or other community facility.
