Respect in Friendship Worksheet

This activity is based on the book, "Be Bigger"" in which a wise old tree teaches a young girl to think about why she is about to be unkind to her friend. The tree helps the girl see that even when feelings are hurt, friends treat each other with kindness and respect. The story also includes lessons on doing the right thing (in this case, talking out issues with a friend) even when it's difficult or uncomfortable.

For each scenario in the worksheet, students choose what the "right" action is, i.e.the action that shows respect and caring, and helps them reach their goal of working out their troubles.
