Humble and Kind

Ninth-grade studio art students at the high school visited fifth-graders at Belmont Elementary School to participate in a collaborative project titled “Humble and Kind.”

As part of the lesson, students watched the music video for Tim McGraw’s song “Humble and Kind,” and then worked together to create inspirational posters containing messages and takeaways from the video. The freshmen brought in posters they had worked on, and assisted the fifth-graders with creating posters of their own using photos and cutouts from magazines. The activity — which was made possible by Jen Olsen hosting the students in the library and Veronica Murphy’s idea for the lesson — not only inspired students and encouraged them to be humble and kind, but also gave them the opportunity to work collaboratively with their counterparts.
