Rachel's Challenge Student Activity
Below are some ideas our students came up with during a Rachel's Challenge activity about what one can do or say in one minute or less to make a positive difference in our school/ world. Remember it only takes one minute to:
- Make the decision to always try your best and don't give up.
- Be friendly to someone new
- Listen to people and answer them
- Remember a smile a day keeps the bullies away
- Keep your head up and smile - you are beautiful!
- If someone says a rude word to you remember it is just a word. Just because they said it does not mean it is true - they could just be having a bad day.
- You are YOU and no one else so SHOW IT!
- When someone is feeling sad, lonely, or left out help them and take them in and be their friend
- Remember you are loved!
- You don't have to meet societies standards of beauty to be beautiful. You just have to be YOU!
- You could sit with someone who is sitting alone at lunch
- Dream big! You are important! You are perfect just the way you are!
- I believe in one minute I will say HI to someone I have never talked to before
- If someone is getting bullied, then you go up to them and tell them "YOU MATTER"!
- Do not fear - don't be afraid. All you have to do is believe in yourself and everything will be all right. Just Believe!
- You're the COOLEST in your own way!
- You could show someone you care by treating them the way you treat yourself. Example: Give them the last piece of candy
- Do YOU know who is awesome? Read the second word (YOU)
