In addition to GLSEN's helpful resources, at IHE we have several activities that explore the power of names and words. Here's a sampling:
Two Apples (pdf)In this icebreaker, participants learn just how important words and actions are when they explore their impact on two apples.
Recommended for All ages.
Time: 5-10 minutes
What’s in a Name? (pdf)“You’re such a pig!” “She’s a total dog!” Help students examine our myths about and prejudices against animals, to explore why they exist, and to consider what we might want to change about our relationships with them.
Recommended for grades 6 and up.
Time: 45 minutes
Word Power (pdf)Words have enormous power and often assign value. This activity explores sample words in context and what kinds of value those words imply.
Recommended for grades 4 and up.
