Bigger Than or Less Than

Using bigger than, less than, or equal signs, role-play different scenarios the youth face on a day to day basis to evaluate whether or not a situation feels “equal.” If the situation doesn’t feel equal have them use, write, or state the bigger than or less than sign to determine who holds the power. Have a discussion about how to make the situation more equal. A scenario might include a child feeling left out on the playground, someone making all the rules and not allowing input from others, or one child pushing another child. A follow-up conversation could include “what do you do if you see this happening?” to encourage bystanders to be peace builders.
