Healthy Environment Chart/Respectful Behavior Activity

DO NOT try this video at home without FIRST talking to your parents, your school official or local police. Video courtesy of thewaytohappiness.org

The Healthy Environment Chart is a simple K-12 language arts activity that uses synonyms and antonyms to help people identify and understand the difference between bullying behavior and healthy respectful behavior.

  • Pass out the chart leaving the left side as it is shown in the example below, on the right side leave only the heading ‘Respectful Behavior’.
  • On the right side, have students fill in as many antonyms they can find for the word on the left.
  • On the left side, have students fill in as many synonyms they can find for the word on the left, write these next to the existing word.

Bullying has many forms, many faces and can be found in any walk of life, it has one commonality – it is abuse with the intent to cause harm. Bullying and cruelty are learned behavior – so is kindness and compassion.
