Anti-Bullying Awareness Activities


Hello Voki Users!

Most of you may know that October is Bullying Awareness Month. It’s so important to have open and honest conversations around bullying in your classrooms. We’re hoping that some of these resources can help you do just that!

Hopeful (Bullying Song)

This song was rewritten by a boy who had been bullied in the past. This song is heartfelt and catchy. Teachers could print out lyrics and have small groups of students listen to it, read it, analyze it and explain each verse.

Voki Bullying Scenarios 

voki bullying scenarios

This Voki presentation gives students the chance to wrestle with truly difficult scenarios in which they take on the role as bystander or bully. What do you do if your best friend is bullying someone? Could you be bullying someone  and not realize you are doing it? These are questions this presentation touches upon. We recommend you use this presentation to get your kids moving around the room .  Setup a line down the center of your room  with each end representing an opposing opinion. Students can stand anywhere on the line to show the varying degrees of their opinions about the scenario. Students should engage in a discussion by explaining why they chose their place in the line and what they would do if they were in the given scenario. This is called the Barometer Activity and can be used to spark debate and foster healthy discussion.

Brain Pop Jr. Bullying Video

We all know and love Brain Pop! They have videos for everything, including Bullying. Luckily, their Brain Pop Jr. video about bullying is free! Many students are familiar with Annie and Moby and will feel comfortable learning about a difficult topic with two trusted characters.
