Zinni's Pedal
Gr K-1
Be sure to read Zinni's Story with your troop before scheduling this program! You'll learn about bullying and the different ways someone can be bullied. We'll then learn ways to stand up and help a classmate or a Daisy who is being bullied and talk about how you can be considerate and caring to them. When you've earned your Zinni Pedal (not included), you'll know how to be considerate and caring just like Zinni the Zinnia. We will go to your Worcester county location to offer this program.
