Random Act of Kid-ness: Unity Day

This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from Ardmore, OK, where students from Lincoln Elementary School took a stand against bullying on Unity Day. Unity Day was created by the Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights National Bullying Prevention Center as a day that creates awareness about bullying. Activities encouraged include wearing orange and pledging to end bullying. Fourth-grader Rida Malik said:

“You need to be respectful of others because when you are respectful, others will be nice to you.”

At the Zimmer Children’s Museum, we know that creating a culture of kindness is essential in early childhood education.  Join us the week of Sunday, October 21 – Friday, October 26 for Cool To Be Kind Week in recognition of National Anti-Bullying Awareness Month as we encourage children to develop empathy and compassion through stories, songs, arts & crafts, and more!

  1. Haha! I still remember that day! Do something nice for a person, and tell them to do something nice to another person. Also tell the person to pass the word on.
