Other Learn Together ideas:

‘Positivity Rocks’. Paint rocks and write positive messages on them e.g. Stay Safe, Be Kind, Smile etc. Place the rocks around your neighbourhood (e.g. on walls, pillars etc) for others to see as they 

walk by. Watch how happy people are when they spot one of your ‘Positivity Rocks!’. 

Thunk! Unusual Questions to make you think. 

There are NO right or wrong answers to these questions – simply YOUR answers. You do, however, need to think about your answers and be able to justify them – in other words, don’t say the first thing that comes into your head, AND, be prepared to fully explain your answers when you give them.
