About This Product

In this lesson, students will learn the difference between direct and indirect bullying. The 8 slide PowerPoint guides the discussion for students by unpacking the definition of bullying and brainstorming examples of direct and indirect situations. Students will also play a sorting activity (after the slides, there are 20 cards and a sorting sheet to print off). The cards contain indirect bullying, direct bullying, and not bullying examples. There is a slide with two optional video links (see slide notes for cue spot) if there is time to show the videos. The sorting game encourages students to share their own perceptions and clarify the type of bullying (or not bullying at all) in a situation.

What's Included

An 8 slide PowerPoint lesson on bullying as well as a 20 card sorting game for students to do in groups.
