Gertrude and Bullying
A couple of weeks ago was Anti-Bullying week. As an activity, a few people cut out a paper girl, her name was Gertrude. Then, the instructions were to insult her in ways and everytime we insulted her, we would have to either rip or crumple the paper girl. And after, we did that, we, as a class, had to put Gertrude back together. And then, we talked about not insulting people and how it can get out of control. The way that Gertrude looked afterwards with all the taped pieces and crumples might look how you feel inside and when you are bullied, you will never be the same again. The pieces of tape represent compliments after you're bullied.
Our class learned a lot of things you shouldn't do from doing this.
