Peace Signs (Grades 3 to 6)
Adjusting to life changes and a new learning environment due to the pandemic, students Jessie, Trina, and Alex realize some important lessons about empathy and resilience. With a little help from their science teacher, Mr. H, the young peacemakers-in-training discover the impact they can have on others and their community—and that sometimes, big changes we want to see in our world must begin with small changes in ourselves.
