Protect Your Personal Space

Bubbles blown in the air begin a lesson about personal space. Making the connection between one's personal bubble and the floating bubbles around them, scholars take part in an activity that challenges them to stand with their peers and identify when someone is their space. A discussion dissects the matter of good touches and bad touches and safe individuals to speak to in case there is any feeling of discomfort or unsafe. Small groups help spread the word of how to protect personal space with original posters.
