What Are Some Resources to Teach Kids and Teens About the Effects of Bullying?

Teachers and parents can use resources from the National Crime Prevention Council, StopBullying.gov and Education World to teach kids about the effects of bullying. These groups offer advice about recognizing bullying, the effects of it and how to prevent it.

Teachers looking for help on how to educate their classes on bullying may want to turn to Education World, which offers some lesson plan ideas including in-class activities like 'Planet X', where students have to create a Bill of Rights for a new colony, and 'The Average Kid', where students must identify traits they share with each other to create a profile of an average student.
