The Kindness Rock Project

Last school year, Mrs. Pierce and Mrs. Shaffer’s students were inspired after one of their peers brought a painted rock to school one day and shared it with the class. The rock was painted with a cat and an inspirational message that said “Smile.” On the back of the rock was a hashtag, #thekindnessrockproject, and the words “keep or pass along for someone to find.” The students became very curious and began asking questions. Mrs. Pierce and Mrs. Shaffer realized that this would be a great opportunity to get their students involved in a project that promoted positivity and mindfulness. They had the students turn this into a research assignment and find out exactly why receiving a positive message could change a person’s mindset.
