Classroom Ideas

After watching this clip, the children could be asked to consider what they think makes a good friend. This could be started by asking children who their best friends are and what they like about them. Through their discussions, the children could be encouraged to develop their understanding of the idea that even best friends disagree sometimes. This could be used as a prompt for further discussions exploring the ways in which conflicts and disagreements can be dealt with by trying to understand one another’s point of view and showing respect for each other’s feelings.
