Pay It Forward

Centered around a film about giving to others freely, this plan incorporates collaborative work, discussion, and kindness. A still from the film starts off the plan as well as the prediction process. Class members then watch the film and talk about the message of the film and the idea of paying it forward. Pupils watch a second short video and come up with five ways they would like to pay it forward. The activity closes with an examination of famous quotes about kindness.
