Middle Schoolers Explore the Concept of Community
Our 6, 7, and 8 graders met with Mrs. LaCour to talk about: What is Community?
Mrs. LaCour and the students discussed the following questions:
What Is a Community?
What do we need to be a community that is positive and healthy?
What comes/grows from those qualities?
What are things that threaten our positive community?
How do we show our acts of kindness, respect?
What can I do to perpetuate a positive and healthy environment?
Each student was then asked to write down their answers on a variety of colored pieces of paper that were then put together to form a mosaic about our community.
The group finished their time together by viewing a video from Life Vest Inside's Kindness Boomerang
, a version of "pay it forward" in action.
