Peace in our Schools
Chicago Public Schools! Other city students! Show Up For Peace by joining the citywide peacebuilding movement in schools on the United Nations International Day of Peace – Thursday, September 21st.
Students at all grade levels can engage in peace-themed music, writing, artwork, poetry, drama, sports, environmental projects and so much more. Create your own activity or try one of these:
- Build the Peace Pledge (Spanish version)
- Peace Breathing Exercise
- Peace Crane Project
- Clean-up Project
- Giant Peace Dove
- Sustainable Development Goals
Classrooms can explore this year’s U.N. Peace Day theme: The Sustainable Development Goals – Building Blocks for Peace. Check out the SDG hip hop video on the UN’s International Day of Peace page. Our summary About Peace Education has ideas for integrating peace education into existing curricula.
