As part of their Character Education curriculum, fifth-grade students shared their personal stories with the school. As they transition to middle school, their footsteps in the hallway enabled us to walk in their shoes.
In this lesson, students were encouraged to think about their feelings and emotions. They wrote their responses on footsteps that they placed in a hallway that leads to the middle school. This form of art intervention allowed the rest of the school to get involved as well. Other students walking by would often stop to read and follow the steps, usually touched by the feelings and situations represented there.
Students practiced kindness and compassion, and also celebrated uniqueness in our inclusive community!
