In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather the children in a circle. Tell them they will have a chance to act out situations where they might use the Golden Rule. Ask for volunteers to come into the middle of the circle to act out the first scenario. When the volunteers are ready, share one of the following scenarios for them to act out. Continue with other volunteers and scenarios. Invite brief discussion after each role play. After a few scenarios, tell the children to raise their Golden Ruler if they have an idea for another scenario, perhaps one from their own experiences or one they make up.
End the activity by asking the group to hold up their Golden Rulers and say; "I promise to be kind and treat others the way I want to be treated."
Some children may be shy about volunteering to act out roles. That is okay. Try to engage everyone in discussion.
