Pictures of Peace Project Directions
What does peace look like to you?
In our classroom guidance lessons leading up to Peace Day, students will be making connections between finding peace within themselves and sharing peace outwardly with others. We all experience peace in different ways. Some of us may find internal peace by listening to the sound of the ocean or reading a good book in a quiet space. Others may experience peace through laughter, music, or exercise. How ever we find peace, it is important to make time to be at peace with ourselves so that we are better able to project a peaceful spirit to the world.
For this project, I ask that students and families submit pictures of peace to be displayed at our Peace Day celebration. Pictures can be digital photographs or printed photos, drawings, or magazine cutouts. What does peace look like to you? Get creative.
Submit pictures to Georgia Godfrey. Send digital submissions (preferred) to email@example.com. If you send hard copies that you would like returned, please label the back of the picture with student and teacher names. Pictures will be displayed and shared with the community on Peace Day.
