Looking for a ready-to-use bullying prevention classroom lesson? This bullying prevention guidance lesson offers a fun and engaging way to teach students the different roles in bullying and what it means to be an upstander. The lesson is designed to be low-prep and ready to use. I have also included detailed scripts, answers, and extension activities so you are never left wondering what to do next.

Students will define bullying and assess one's ability to be an upstander. They will also learn what is and what is not considered bullying (this is especially helpful for those students that think EVERYTHING is bullying).

This Lesson Includes:

  • Counselor's Guide including ASCA and CASEL-aligned objectives
  • Detailed Outlines with scripts, suggested student answers, and extension activities
  • Interactive Icebreaker
  • “Speed Dating” Discussion
  • Bullying Prevention Board Game
  • Written Reflection
  • Data Collection Tool: Pre and Post-Lesson Self-Assessments

In a 2003 Harris poll of more than 2,200 girls between the ages of 8 and 17 commissioned by the Girl Scouts of America, bullying topped girls’ lists of concerns. When asked what they worried about the most, the most common response was being socially ostracized, being teased, or being made fun of.  The concern over bullying is not limited to girls either, a recent U.S. study shows that 17 percent of all students reported having been bullied "sometimes" or more often.

This classroom lesson is designed to give you something actionable you can work on with your students that will allow them to understand, report, and overcome bullying behavior. The lesson would be a perfect fit for October (bullying prevention month) but it is designed to be used all year long.

Benefiting Students

Bullying Prevention education is crucial for fostering a safe learning environment. Helping students to identify bullying behavior and how to appropriately react to it can be potentially lifesaving.

At a minimum, this lesson will allow students to define bullying and the difference between tattling and reporting.

Saving Time

This lesson is ready to use and designed to be low-prep.

Who is this Lesson Designed For?

This lesson is designed for students grades 1-5 but the slides are completely editable and can be changed to fit a wide variety of student needs.
