Invisible Boy is a heartwarming story about a young boy who is looking for a sense of belonging at school. The boy is always feeling left out, or invisible, until one day a new student joins the class. From a simple gesture, a new friendship blooms. Soon after, the Invisible Boy turns out to be not so invisible after all. This module allows students to artfully explore their own feelings and friendships.
