The 9th June 2020 is Empathy Day which is all about the power of empathy to change lives.
Being able to understand how other people think and feel is a vital skill. Research shows that reading teaches children to talk about emotions and see the world from new perspectives. This pack below is full of great activities to develop those skills and put them into practice.
The activities are divided into Empathy Day’s three themes- Read, Connect, Act but you can do them in any order. You don’t need specific books to take part. Drawing and craft materials are helpful, but all the activities can be done with just scrap paper and a pen. You don’t need to print this pack!
Get involved to connect and build empathy together through the power of books! We have attached the Family Activities pack below along with a programme for the day.
