Murchison Elementary School - Los Angeles, CA
We feature worksheets from the clever staff at Murchison Elementary School where PeaceBuilders is infused into the daily curriculum. These and other student worksheets incorporate the PeaceBuilders language and ideals in wise and wonderful ways.
This worksheet focuses on the kindness demonstrated by PeaceBuilders who build bridges with their helpful, kind behaviors. Children are asked to write about two kind things they have done during the past week to help build a bridge and to think of two things they can do in the near future. This worksheet allows PeaceBuilding children to recognize and perpetuate their good deeds.
Children are encouraged to set concrete, positive goals in this “Dreams of My Own” worksheet. They are asked to contemplate the goal and the value of it and to speculate about the “Wise Person” who can help them achieve their goal. They also are encouraged to acknowledge and appreciate their special talents. This is a wonderful esteem building exercise.
At Murchison, children are counted on to “Help Others” by keeping the school clean. Drawing a picture of themselves picking up litter, as this worksheet requires, allow them to envision themselves performing a positive task that will make their school a more pleasant place to be.
“Murchison PeaceBuilders Achieve Their Dreams” is the title of this worksheet, which urges children to make healthy choices.
Each worksheet incorporates PeaceBuilders language in order to immerse the children in a culture that focuses on building peace while they learn and grow. These worksheets make being a PeaceBuilder both fun and relevant. We are happy to share them with you and grateful to the wise folks at Murchison for sharing them with us!

The wise adults at Murchison deserve plenty of praise for the creative way they incorporate PeaceBuilders Principles and language into the daily school work children do. Wholly integrating PeaceBuilders in this way ensures that it becomes a habitual way of thinking and behaving for everyone involved—and that makes for a happy, peaceful childhood for the fortunate students at Murchison.
