I challenge my class with one kindness mission a week. If they complete it they have to take or draw a picture and write a short blurb about their "mission". If I'm worried one of the missions will be hard to complete I will give them two to choose from. This is such a wonderful activity to do either as a formal assignment or as an extra credit/reward opportunity and is a great way to teach the class empathy and can also help segway the class into great discussions.. Sometimes I can even tie the mission into the lesson theme that we are learning that week. I use it with my fourth graders but this activity would work really well for almost any age group with some tweaking.
The fact that they made these cards spy themed was brilliant. My kid is running around doing chores and nice things for his sister and is getting a kick out of trying to be sneaky while doing it!
I got this for my nieces and nephews and I hear they have been steadily completing the missions for the past few weeks. I got a letter in the mail as one of the missions which was really nice :)
I split this deck in 3 and turned it into a little competition between me and my two sons to see who could do the most kind things in one week. We weren't able to do them all but we had a lot of fun completing the ones we were able to do. For sure a keeper!
