Kindness Game: Angels and Mortals     © Jenny Jenkins 2015      https://sites.google.com/site/valueslessons

Have each student write their name on a card and put them all into a hat (container).

Each student (angel) draws out another's name and keep the name secret. That student is their 'mortal', to practice kindness on for a week. 
Over the next week, they are to see how many small kind things they can do (or say) for their 'mortal.' Aim for at least one each day. 
They are to do them secretly but be prepared to report back on their assignment at the end of the week. (Older students may keep a log.)
Discuss ideas on what kinds of things angels could do for their mortals.

At the end of each day, have the students tell of acts of kindness done for them by others in the class, or that they had noticed another student doing. 
They are not to share their own kind deeds until the end of the week.
