People do not learn kindness by only thinking about it – kindness is mostly an action and a behaviour; therefore, kindness is best grown by doing! The Kindness Curriculum can assist in instilling the genuine values of kindness from an early age and can help young people reap the associated physical, emotional and mental health benefits.
The Kindness Curriculum has developed, sourced and collated activities that teachers, schools and parents can use to scaffold inquiry-styled conversations with students and build knowledges associated with kindness. Activities for prior-to-school, early years, primary school, middle school and senior students explore 12 scientifically proven drivers of kindness. The activities have a clear rationale, a set of learning outcomes, a sequence of learning steps and embedded resources and are suitable as standalone activities to explore, investigate and address kindness from a social emotional learning lens.
