Bullying Lessons Using Apples

Subject Area

Health Education


1, 2, 4, 5


Most students know that bullying is bad, and yet bullying still happens in our schools every day.

When we say hurtful things to other people, we often can’t see the damage that we’re doing on the inside. Our classmates may appear fine, but they’re really hurting. On the other hand, our kind words can be used to build someone else up, and make them feel beautiful on the inside.

These bullying lessons use apples to provide a memorable, visual to show the damage that can be done with harsh, unkind words.
