Kindness Club Kit - Tools to Start an Animal Rights Club!

Kindness Club Kit - Tools to Start an Animal Rights Club!

(Ideal for Years 3–8, but can easily be adapted for all year levels) Empower your students, foster critical and creative thinking skills, and have some fun! This Kindness Club kit is designed for young activists who want to start an animal rights club in school. Starting a club is a great way for passionate students to get together and share ideas, plan and carry out meaningful and empowering activities for change, and spread awareness about animal rights issues in their communities. The Kindness Club guide is an 8-page booklet that details how students can start a club in their school, and includes useful tips about forming and maintaining an advocacy group. The five skill builders included in the booklet have been developed by experienced activists, teachers and writers to teach students various forms of effective and peaceful activism in today’s democratic environment, such as letter-writing, petitioning, creating awareness material using print and video media, and fundraising. The fact sheets include important information about various animal rights issues in Australia, as well as research points and discussion questions designed to encourage students to think critically about the information and conduct their own investigations. Students can use the campaign ideas in their booklet to start their club’s first activities, or use them to develop their own ideas for their first campaigns.

Comeback Cards

Comeback Cards

These cards are designed to be downloaded, cut out and laminated. They are extremely useful in helping elementary and middle school students develop the language to deal with bully’s who use their words to hurt or embarrass others. They also provide students with positive self talk statements that help to improve the victims self esteem and confidence. Once these cards are produced they can be given to multiple students and placed in a folder or punched and placed in a binder. They are an excellent tool to help deal with individual fears that occur because of a bully’s harassment and intimidation.
