Summer Rising | Kindness Quilt
What does kindness look like to elementary school students when kindness is showed to others? What does it look like when we show it to ourselves?
Kindness is respecting yourself and others.
Kindness is like a cloud covering the sun on a hot day.
Kindness is a quiet space.
Students collaboratively composed metaphors and similes around kindness which they translated into drawings. These drawings would become the design elements of a Kindness Quilt mural, with each student composing and painting their personalized canvas squares.
The finished squares would then be stitched together to create the Kindness Mural to be displayed at the school for peers and community to enjoy.
