Anti-Bullying Day, Pink Shirts and Prezi Preparation

On Wednesday we wore our pink shirts and bracelets to take a stand against bullying. We had several discussions during the day about being bullied, being a bystander and being a bully. We ended the day with a group activity. Each student created a paper doll of themselves. Then, we met as a group and began to pass the dolls around the circle. Each person made a tiny rip, wrinkle or tear in the doll. These rips etc. represented what happens every time we are bullied. We are scarred forever and no matter how much we try to fix our "wrinkles" and "rips" they leave a mark on us forever! It was a very powerful activity and really gave students a chance to connect to how bullying can effect everyone!

We also worked with our Prezi partners to record our learning statements so that we can add them to our Prezi next week.
