Learners get inspiration from the work and words of Mother Teresa about performing small acts of kindness. They make a plan for carrying out a small act of kindness.
In this lesson, we learn that small actions do matter to the common good. While Mother Teresa is an amazing example of generosity, selflessness, and caring, we don't need to give up everything and make grand gestures to be caring.
Learners explore the meaning of playing by the rules and making personal choices that support the common good. They discuss how people could respond with honesty and dishonesty to the same situation.
