Golden Rule


Mini Thematic Unit

The Golden Rule, "Treat others the way you want them to treat you," has been a standard of behavior in societies around the world for thousands of years.  This set of lesson plans and materials will help your students identify and practice this important attitude.  It's a great unit for the first week of school, and for any time students lose their compassion or patience with their peers (and teachers).
