Element 6: Taking Action
Taking Action Against Bullying is an Element 6 book on how to take action. This book is a great resource for elementary students that teaches children how to stop bullying. As we all know, bullying is a serious issue for students and it seems as if it isn't getting any better, so this is a way to promote anti-bullying. This is also a great way for children to stand up to bullies and keep themselves and other students safe.

After reading this book to the students, have the students act out a bullying situation they have seen before or maybe they can get really creative and make up their own skit and show how the person getting bullied is really effected by it. This is a great way for students to get a visual sense of how hurtful bullying can be. Once all of the students have watched the other students' skit, tell the students to stop bullying next time they see it happening.
