Kindness-in-the-Classroom Activities

The Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Foundation is enhancing Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Week (February 12–18, 2017) with an online Kindness Generator that serves as an rally point for activities worldwide this year. With the Kindness Generator, teachers and students everywhere can find inspiration for kind acts to perform during RAK Week (#RAKWeek2017) and create weeklong challenges for their schools, communities, or even themselves. The new Kindness Generator also serves as a central repository of challenges from RAK’s partner organizations and a newsroom that tallies acts of kindness in real time and calls out how many people globally are participating in challenges. The Kindness Generator also allows users to track challenges by location. To accompany the Kindness Generator, classrooms can use resources available on the companion Discover Kindness in the Classroom website. Available at no cost, these materials from Discovery Education are designed to stimulate thoughtful conversations between educators and students about the importance of kindness in their daily lives. They include lesson plans and activities that highlight concepts such as compassion, respect, and fairness. Schools can participate in RAK Week by adding a challenge to the Kindness Generator or taking part in a kindness challenge established by another person, educator, or organization.
