Activity #4: “Hands Together To Make A Difference”

Students trace and colour their hands while continuing to understand the variety of ‘feeling words’ that this book discussed.


  • 11” x 17” white drawing paper
  • 12” x 18” coloured construction paper
  • Various colours of pencil crayons and /or paints
  • Paint brushes
  • Water
  • Thin black felt pens
  • Glue
  • ‘Feeling Words’ from the story, displayed on flip chart paper (from Activity #2)

Teacher Preparation:

  • N/A


Step by Step: 

Step One: Review the various ‘feeling words’ that were used throughout the story. Brainstorm other feeling words that students might think of that could be added to the list on the flip chart as a visual for the students.

Step Two: Have students trace their hands on the 11” x 17” paper. Fill the page with as many copies of the hands as fits without overlapping (usually about 5 or 6 hands).

Step Three: Students are encouraged to colour-in their hands with pencil crayons or paints. They should colour a variety of designs on each of the hands.

Step Four: Once each hand on the paper is coloured, students use a black felt pen and write a ‘feeling word’ inside each hand. (E.g. supported, loved, respected, valued, appreciated, etc)

Step Five: Glue the finished product onto a background of coloured construction paper.


End Product:

A display of student artwork showing hands that represent people working together to make a positive difference. Display the poem from the story in the center of the hand artwork:

Be kind in all you say and do,

‘Cause acts of kindness follow you:

With just one kindness a chain will start

To grow and glow from heart to heart!
