These anti-bullying activities for kids will teach children various concepts that are important for bullying prevention. Each activity will help children learn about things such as what qualifies as bullying, Why it’s important not to bully others, and how to intervene if someone else is being bullied. We’ve got a number of classroom projects for preschool and elementary school teachers, as well as some for older kids. (More ideas for teacher in older age groups can be found in our bullying ebook.)
