Download the Kids Resource Poster Contest template to begin getting kids involved in thinking about a theme and reflecting their visual image of the theme on a poster that can be displayed with others. Kids can judge the displayed posters and choose the winners.
Start a Club
Start a Kids Resource Bullying Prevention Club. Ask a teacher, administrator or parent to serve as a club advisory. Plan activities to teach other students, families and the community about preventing bullying.
Have students brainstorm and write a bullying prevention tip sheet, telling other students what to do when they are affected by bullying.
Teach a Lesson
Have your students create and teach a lesson about bullying prevention to the younger students in your school or district. Allow students to develop lesson plans and share them with the teachers of the grades they wish to teach. After they receive feedback, have your students revise their lesson plans and then teach them.
Collect dear bully letters from students written anonymously to alleged bullies about bullying (no last names). The letters provide an opportunity for students to tell a bully what’s on their mind. It could be a bout a friend who is being bullied or yourself or even from the bully to themselves. Sometimes a bully doesn’t know that they are being a bully, it’s also an opportunity for a bully to express what they’re thinking.
Letters can be used during assemblies to provide insight on what students are experiencing in their own schools and to help educators know where to focus
How to Report Bullying
Have students recommend a way for other students to report bullying that protects their identity. Be sure students have considered what tools will be needed to support their ideas and how to implement their recommendations
