It was Bullying Free week so we did some activities to learn more about how we can help others and be kind. We did an activity to talk about the effect that words can have on others.
Miss Park gave us 2 apples that looked the same. To one apple, we said not very nice things to it, such as - "You are an ugly apple." "I don't like you." To the other apple, we said nice things such as "You are beautiful." "I like you."
When we cut them open, we found that the apple we said not very nice things to was all bruised on the inside while the apple we said nice things to was nice looking on the inside.
We talked about how it is the same for people, if you say unkind things to people, they will hurt on the inside even though we might not be able to see it on the outside.
