What a great way to get students talking about what it looks like to be kind. The word "kindness" can be so arbitrary, it's important to really help students understand what it means. Great little activity!

The next level is becoming reflective about empathy. This game is practical and will lead them to that process. This could be incorporated into activities that promote emotional maturation. Becoming interdependent will allow the student to see how most organizations that require loyalty to be more important than logical thinking also will demand that they be seen as loving and kind by their adherents. Morality is an emergent property of society. It is not a stalwart aspect of physics that is handed down from an external source. It is derived and is functional when it supplies our species with a form of clear headed thinking that promotes autonomy, a lack of hidden agendas, self awareness and which seeks the health of all forms of people and the environment that supports life itself.

What a great game! Anything we can do to support kindness is worth doing.
