Activity: Bring in fears of transitioning into a new school for sixth-grade; have students (5th graders) write something they are concerned about and write it on an index card and put it in a hat without putting their name on it. Write each of these on a separate card to ensure anonymity and pass out the questions; each student will respond to the question they were given to show that students are not alone and can help each other through the transition from elementary school to middle school.
