Want to get children talking about empathy?

Try these three short films about empathy, supporting and comforting others. Suitable for older secondary students, they would be great for stimulating class discussion on what is empathy and how it differs, for example, from sympathy. The first has fun animations to illustrate what empathy means. In the second children talk about what it means to them. The third asks whether animals can show empathy, and describes some recent controversial research.
