Empathy/Kindness Lesson... read a short story, tearing off pieces of the heart. After the story, lead a discussion about putting the heart back together, and ask students about kind things they can do for others. As they discuss acts of kindness, pick the pieces off the floor. Then glue the pieces on a poster as a reminder to have a kind heart.

Great Activity to do with older kids (I first did it in Gr.12 Outdoor Ed.)--Everyone in the group has to keep 2 fingers on the tent pole at all times. The goal is to bring the pole off the ground to a certain height without anyone taking their fingers off the pole. (Could go from a certain height then to the ground.) If someone's finger comes off, the group must re-start. TEAMWORK
