Helping Others Worksheet (PDF)

What is the theory behind this Helping Others Worksheet PDF?

An important aspect of teaching healthy relationship building to kids is encouraging them to help others in need. A part of social skills training is to stress on how societies thrive on altruistic behaviour and support systems. It instills empathy and perspective-taking, both of which are precursors to helping behaviour. Promoting helping behaviour will also ensure kids are able to build positive relationships with others in the school hence promoting a culture of harmony that they can carry onward to life outside school. 

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet will help young kids brainstorm ideas on how they can show helping behaviour in certain situations. It will also encourage them to think about a time when they received someone’s help when they needed it the most and how it impacted them.  Responses can be shared as a way to motivate others. 

How to use the worksheet?

This worksheet can be used in classroom settings or group counselling sessions with kids 10 and above. Instruct the kids to write one way they can provide help depending on the given situations. Then think of a time when they received much needed help and how it made them feel. Responses can be shared with consent.
