More Inclusive Schools Week Lesson Ideas!

Find more great ideas on our website, or try the featured activities below!

I Spy a Champion!

Introduce the 2016 ISW theme and ask students to share how they have observed someone at school helping to include others. As a class, create a poster describing what a hero or champion is. See this great example from the Beyond the Beanstalk Blog. Provide time for students to journal about a hero in their life and how this person has made a difference in others' lives.

Inclusion in Action Comic

Have students brainstorm how they could be a champion of inclusion at school or at home. Students will select a comic book template and create a comic describing an event where they are helping someone feel included. Use free online tools like Kids Activities Blog Comic Book Templates, Make Beliefs Comix, or Toondoo.

Decorate Your Walls

Have students create their own superhero persona! They will use this thinksheet to describe and illustrate themselves as a superhero. Students can post their illustrations in the classroom or school hallway to share their superpowers!

Heroes in Training

Participate in the MY HERO Project. This is a non-profit organization that empowers people of all ages to realize their own potential to effect positive change in the world. Choose one or more activities from the My HERO Project in this Unit created for K-5th grade. Review a list of ways to participate in their Project and decide what works best for your students.

Exit Stars

Exit Stars is a great way to end Inclusive Schools Week! At the beginning of the week, explain that students will be Champions of Inclusion. Give students a star or star-shaped Post-It NoteTM. If they or a classmate demonstrate an act of kindness by being inclusive they write their name and what they did on the star. Have students hang the stars on the classroom door or a location near the classroom exit.
