Looking for a low-prep, interactive kindness lesson? Guaranteed you and your students will have tons of fun playing this quiz show style SEL activity!  Best of all, your students will learn, and practice team building and social skills, all while learning about and discussing ways to be kind.



You can use this Game Show as a stand-alone classroom guidance lesson about kindness and/or supplement to your character education activities. Great for your small groups, too!  Moreover, it’s distance learning ready:  it includes both Google Slides™ and PowerPoint Presentation files, which allows you to use for SEL distance learning, teletherapy, virtual counseling groups, school counseling guidance and in person lessons.


What’s Super Sweet About this Character Education Lesson on Being Kind?

The Game Show format is hands-on and experiential.  Moreover, your students will use reflective thinking, cooperative learning, and be able to show off and build on their smarts in different ways.  Plus, the questions and challenges are 100% customizable so if you like, you can edit them to better fit your specific needs.  On top of that, it’s low-prep, perfect for all you busy counselors and teachers!  There’s even a school counseling guidance lesson plan included, too!


The Game Show Categories Are:

  • ACT IT OUT: teams act out / role play the challenge prompt.
  • TRUE or FALSE: teams decide whether the statement is true or false.
  • SKETCH IT: teams quickly draw their answers.
  • IMAGINE IF: teams answer “Imagine If” questions, using their imagination & problem solving skills.
  • RISK: teams take a “risk” because the type of question and/or challenge is not revealed until chosen.


What’s needed to play the Game Show?

  • If you are using this kindness lesson in person, it is best used with a Promethean White Board or projector that that can be hooked up to your computer; it’s formatted as a PowerPoint presentation and now Google Slides™, too!
  • If using for distance learning, all players need internet access. Share your screen with students!
  • Want to go screen-free? No problem! This Game Show also comes with printable task cards with the same prompts as the Game Show challenges.


Provides lots of flexibility…

Given that the GAME SHOW takes 40-60 minutes to play, and sometimes we just don’t have that much time….or that the GAME SHOW works best projected on a large screen, and sometimes the technology breaks down….or that there are days when we walk into the classroom and just know that a whole classroom game is not going to fly that day….and sometimes students need more quiet, reflective activities……I have included more than 6 additional formats that do not require the use of the PowerPoint presentation or Google slides™. (Note: the additional activities do involve some printing prep-work.)



  • M 1. Belief in development of whole self, including a healthy balance of mental, social/emotional and physical well-being
  • M 3. Sense of belonging in the school environment
  • M 6. Positive attitude toward work and learning
  • B-LS 2. Demonstrate creativity

This was just the reset my class needed. Ever since we had a “Kindness day” and played this, I’ve been noticing a lot more kindness from my students towards others.

Easy to use and engaging. They are nice to introduce a character word or simply review an area where the class needs a few reminders. So much more fun and effective than lecturing at them.
