One way to counteract cyberbullying in your school is to be kinder to your friends, classmates, and acquaintances. Acts of kindness include: Smiling at friends, teachers, and other school employees, Giving your friends compliments, Helping classmates who are struggling with homework, And sharing positive things online.

You could also draw a picture or make a collage about a friend, a classmate, a team, a school club, or something positive that happened at your school.

In this extension, you will use Google Drawings to make a picture that shows kindness, respect, or admiration. Then, you will download the image to share it online.

To start, open Google Drive.

Then, create a blank canvas in Google Drawings.

Give your drawing a title.
