“Be Kind Activity” is based as a challenge to see how much you’ve done or can do in the course of a week during our time of social distancing. Very similar to a bingo game, but challenges the well being of us while completing kind acts.
Grids Found Here:
Modifications: With a 4 by 4 grid the modified version would be a short 15 min bingo of a host calling out the boxes to see who can get the most the fastest. By random boxes being drawn and whoever of the students/players participating in the game completes a bingo pattern first, wins (a line with four numbers in a diagonal, horizontal, or vertical row).
- How did it make you feel when you completed some of the acts of kindness?
- Which activity was your favorite? Why?
- Did this inspire you to do other acts of kindness, not found in this activity?
- Do you see yourself continuing to do acts of kindness? What about when social distancing ends?
