In June, we focused on the first two principles: that each and every person is important and that all people should be treated fairly and kindly. We explored these principles with consensus decision-making activities, through stories about people who overcame oppression in society, and by practicing giving every person an equal turn trying things out, without unhelpful interruption or criticism. In the process, we’ve designed and started building a fort in the woods, planted blueberry bushes, done science experiments, acted out stories, and much more! It’s been a fabulous month of growth.
