This activity, appropriate for grades 4 and up, can serve as an excellent springboard for exploring compassion and introducing important social change issues to students. After a brief reflection on what compassion means, the activity uses "scenario" stations to inspire participants to think about who's in their circle of compassion and why, and what they can do to make a positive difference for those being oppressed.
