Themes: Conflict Resolution, Bullying and Violence Prevention
Audience: Grades 3 to 6
When a playground conflict leads to detention for Jessie, Trina, and Alex, the 3 students learn some important lessons about empathy and nonviolence. With a little help from science teacher Mr. H and his unpredictable invention, the Stoplight Solution, the young peacemakers-in-training discover just how much impact they can have on others and their community—and that sometimes, the big changes they want to see in the world must begin with small changes in themselves.
