An interactive activity title for 9-12-year-olds on the power of kindness
You can choose to make the world a better place. The power is within you!
Every one of us experiences the world differently we have different worries and problems, and we all have unique hopes and dreams but there s one thing that can unite us and make the world a better place, and that s KINDNESS!
Kindness is cool! No, really! Kindness can create positive change in all our lives. Whether it s being a friend to someone who seems lonely, or simply smiling or giving somebody a thumbs up. When we support each other, we can be our best selves.
Be the Change: Be Kind is your handbook on how to use your own voice to empower yourself and others to spread kindness. Award-winning children s author Marcus Sedgwick tells the story of kindness where it comes from, what it feels like and perhaps most importantly why it matters and asks YOU what would you do in different everyday scenarios.
