Unique You! Fairness

The following character education activites are from the KRP supplement "Unique You" and geared for elementary age children.


Fairness is all about following the rules. Games have rules, but other things in life have rules, too.

We live in a world with lots of other people. If there weren’t rules to follow, we would end up spending our whole day arguing with people or trying to get out of their way! Playing fair and following the rules helps us all get along better.


SPORTS PAGE SEARCH                                                                                              Work with a friend and search the sports pages. Make a list of all the sports that you can find in today’s newspaper. Discuss some of the rules that are involved in each sport. If a game didn’t have rules, would you be able to play it?

THAT’S NOT FAIR!                                                                                                   Write the 5 W’s – Who, What, When, Where, Why – down the left side of your paper. Then write your answers to the following questions beside each one. When was the last time you said, “That’s not fair?” Where were you? What was happening? Who else was involved? Why didn’t you think you were being treated fairly?
