Lesson 18: We Don't Bully at Our School


This lesson helps students understand school rules around bullying and why bullying is wrong. They identify the difference between teasing and bullying, then the teacher reviews school policies and the consequences for bullying at school. They build their understanding of bullying by discussing questions and creating drawings of how bullying makes targets feel, what bullies do and how to report a bullying situation to a trusted adult. They practice how to ask for help with a bullying situation, and take home a family sheet to help them discuss bullying with their parents or guardians.
