Taking action against prejudice > Activity 4.2
- Ask students to think about the unfair scenarios discussed in the previous activity or other unfair situations they may have encountered. Explain to students that people's behaviour typically determines how fair or unfair a situation is.
- Ask students to work in groups. Distribute a copy of Handout 15: New girl revisited [PDF]; Handout 16: Sharing lunch revisited [PDF]; Handout 17: Playing basketball revisited [PDF]; and Handout 18: My family revisited [PDF] to each group. Encourage students to fill in the empty speech bubbles with a response that shows tolerance, understanding and kindness. Handout 19: Scenarios revisited [PDF] may be used for teacher reference.
- Ask students to share their answers with the class. Conclude the lesson by discussing the effects of fair and unfair behaviour in each scenario. Draw out the differences.
- Display the completed scenarios in the classroom.
- This activity aims to provide students with opportunities to explore the effects of unfair or prejudiced behaviour and to find approaches that encourage understanding and tolerance.
