Over the past decade, teaching empathy has surged in popularity across United States education. Some schools may not teach it yet. Others may teach it as early as elementary schools. Some even give it a shot in middle schools and high schools.

Now that you’re motivated to teach empathy, let’s lighten the mood with some awesome empathy lesson plans!
