Lunch or Playground Activity
Sometimes at lunch we sit with our same friends every day. On the playground or during free time we play or hang out only with our friends. However, when we do not make an effort to be friends with other people we lose the opportunity to learn about other people and make new friends. When we meet and talk with others, we learn to respect and appreciate other people, and maybe even make new friends! Visit the website link below to start this activity at your school:
