1. Purchase the Good-Bye Bully Machine Card Game. These cards encourage children to talk about what defines a bully, how it feels to be bullied and how to stop bullying from happening. It is important to discuss strategies so that children are prepared to stop bullies, not support them.
2. Create machine parts out of construction paper and have students write down mean, hurtful behaviors. Create hammers out of construction paper and instruct students to write down ways to stop bullying. Create a poster or bulletin board with the bully machine parts. Surround the machine with the hammers, waiting to break apart the machine. This will serve as a constant reminder of appropriate, helpful behavior.
