Actions of Peace
There are many ways to approach the concepts of peace and non-violence. The Actions of Peace curriculum partners activities from both the Rubin Museum of Art and generationOn to examine peace through the arts, as well as ways that students can promote and learn about peace through service and community involvement. Although you’ll find these lessons useful at any time of the year, Actions of Peace was created to highlight October 2nd, the International Day of Non-Violence (which is also Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday).
The four sets of lessons are best used with grades 3-8 and are divided into two distinct sections: an overview lesson and experience designed to address how students understand and communicate peace and a service-learning lesson and project designed to broaden students' thinking about peace within their local community. The final chapter includes resources to guide educators and students in producing a school or community-wide event to celebrate peace.
