The golden rule

This week Grade 1-5 read the very meaningful book, The Golden Rule, by Ilene Cooper and illustrated by Gabi Swiatkowska. We learned how the golden rule of being considerate of others is taught in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and the Shawnee Tribe of North America. We realised how important it is that this rule is followed by everyone on the planet! We discussed the PYP attitudes of cooperation, empathy and respect.

We also watched the “Charter for Compassion” based on the golden rule and you can watch it here:
