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.
Anything someone does that makes someone else feel bad or unsafe is bullying. It can take many forms: name-calling, leaving someone out, or hurting them. Kids bully other kids for all sorts of reasons: for having lots of friends or very few friends, or for being different. Bullying is never okay. If you're getting bullied, you can ignore it, surround yourself with friends, try talking it out, or tell a trusted adult. If you're bullying other kids, please stop. It's way cooler to be nice to people!
