## It Hurts.

My old teacher was about to do this with her class after lunch, and it made me think. Really, it made me think, hard and long...

Materials:
Paper

Step 1:
Take that piece of paper and crumple it up.

Step 2:
Throw it on the floor. A quite simple task.

Step 3:
Step on it a few times, do anything destructive you want to it. (Do not cut it or rip it though)

Step 4:
Pick that piece of paper up. Now, I want you to uncrumple it.

Step 5:
Think now..
You can't right? Can you get rid of all the wrinkles, lines, scuff marks or marks on the paper and return it to its previous state? No?

That is how a person is after they are bullied and teased. They can't get rid of the scars. No matter how much they try, they will always be scarred and hurt.
Now, think twice before calling anyone a name... before teasing them. Before bullying them for something they did. Before calling anyone fat or ugly.
Think of the outcome...

Step 6:
After you've thought about that, please go reuse that piece of paper, turn it into an airplane, write on it, use it for something other than the trashcan. And if you really want to throw it away, please, use the recycling bin. Arigato.

P.E. Method ~ EXTRA

Materials:
5+ people
Deck of cards WITHOUT the joker card and the 1's.

In sports, I've been shunned out of games and teams. Because I'm not an "ace".

Step 1:
Shuffle the cards.

Step 2: Hand them out to the people, but don't let them know the number

Step 3: Explain to them that the higher their number is, the higher their 'popularity' is, and their 'rank'. Try to find the people with the higher number cards and "hang out" with them. The lower number people, shun them and basically try to avoid them...

Step 4: Tell them to hold the cards to their forehead, don't let them see their own numbers. (You can also do this, but please pick random card...)

Step 5: Ask them to stand up and walk around, go mingle with the aces, kings, queens, jacks, ect.

Step 6: Tell people to stand in place and now look at their number.
How did they feel if they were the lower numbers?
Ask them to think... what does this remind them of?

Step 7: Collect cards.

Doesn't this remind you of sports teams? It's a lesson. Don't judge people by their looks. It hurts. It will scar them. It will hurt more than you think...
Get to know them before judging anyone...
If you were one of those aces, please accept others and let them in... You might have just befriended this person. Don't assume anything before listening to their story.
If you are one of those aces, and you don't accept others,
You could have ruined someone's year at school. Everyday, (at least), they will have PE/Gym. And now they'll hate the teacher. They'll hate the school. They'll hate sports. They'll sit out and won't play.
Would you like to be hurt like that? No. Don't. Accept others.
Arigato.

Now, end of my little... lesson. Please, don't judge others. Please, don't bully. It hurts. I, myself, have been bullied quite a lot.
Don't bully, it scars people for years. No, it scars them forever.
Please don't. Arigato..
