Peace Avenger! (Super Me assembly and classroom program)
Grades 1-6, 45-60 min
The Peace Avenger assembly engages kids in an anti-bullying trivia game based on movie quotes from their favorite superheroes. Six students volunteer to represent their heroes and wield their symbolic peacekeeping props. They lead their peers in discussing inspirational messages such as—
“We all know the truth; more connects us than separates us.”
Along the way, they learn the everyday superpowers that make all fantasy superpowers possible; a good heart filled with compassion, righteousness, kindness, and a desire to help those in need. After celebrating the moral wisdom of fantasy icons, we connect with real-life superheroes like Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi. This emphasizes the program’s ultimate message that there is a hero inside all of us. Finally, a student is chosen to come on stage and show that she/he is worthy to lift
Thor’s legendary hammer of goodness.
The Peace Avenger assembly is the introduction to its more comprehensive classroom component the Super Me Anti-Bully program. Please, click here to see additional Super Me programs.
