Fairness

Fairness is the subject of a instructional activity designed to boost relationship skills and social awareness. Class members discuss that fairness is getting what you need when needed, differences are okay, and review classroom rules to identify their level of fairness. Pupils put their knowledge to the test when they read scenarios and decide which are fair and which are unfair.
