The Classroom Edition
Kindness Checklist

Students are challenged to perform acts of kindness using the GKC - Classroom Edition kindness checklist. Each act of kindness from the classroom edition checklist has a corresponding kindness lesson. You choose how many acts per week i.e. how many kindness lessons to implement. Students use the GKC - Classroom Edition checklist to keep track of their progress througout the year.


The kind acts on the kindness checklist focus on key kindness concepts: 

  • caring (incl. self-care)

  • respect

  • gratitude

  • inclusiveness


The Great Kindness Challenge is an action-based program and the kindness concepts are internalized through the hands-on experiences.
