We recently completed a Golden Rule Project coloring book in collaboration with Kelli Bellon, a local artist. The “book” is essentially a packet of twenty-two cards with mandala-like images featuring a golden rule quote by a renowned historical figure. A brief biography of the person quoted is included on the reverse side of each card. The cards themselves measure 5″ x 7″. For educators, we have made the images of each card available as a downloadable PDF, sized to fit standard 8.5″ x 11″ sheets

Teachers can also get the free Story Starter Cards like Students…
