 150 Ways to Show Kids You Care


150 Ways to Show Kids You Care is a poster created by The Search Institute designed to "translate scientific research into simple, actionable ways that adults can make a positive difference in young people’s lives".  The Institute has sold over 6 million copies of the poster, so needless to say, it's fairly well known.  A team from The Search Institute recently visited Woodson Kindergarten Center and recorded the following video to help "re-imagine the ideas on the poster".
