Building a Bully-free Building
This anti-bullying lesson plan helps students to engage in guided-fantasy activities to help them imagine a school without name-calling or bullying. Through creative methods such as drawing, students will create a group plan for their ideal bully-free school.

The lesson also serves to help students identify places in and around school where bullying and name-calling take place. This lesson is intended for K-5 children.

Ready, Set, Respect!

Ready, Set, Respect! was developed to ensure that elementary children develop respectful attitudes and behaviors, so all children feel safe in school.

Ready – When are teachers and students ready to teach and learn about respect?
Set – Do classrooms set up and/or reinforce students’ learning?
Respect – What evidence will teachers have to demonstrate that their students are acquiring respectful behavior?

This toolkit provides three sets of thematically developed and grade-span specific (K-2 or 3-5) lessons.

Lessons covered: Name-calling, bullying and bias; family diversity; and gender roles and diversity.
