Unit Overview 

Inspired by the book Buzzy the Bumblebee, the children brainstorm words of encouragement that help build each other up. A simulation helps them see the bonds of a positive community make them stronger, while unkind words can weaken the whole community. 

Service Experience 
Children may put words of encouragement up in a public space to share their message of "kindness makes a strong community."
