Project Description

DRIVING QUESTION:

Poverty – how can I personally help?

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Students will research organizations helping local or global people living in poverty and educate their peers on what that organization is doing to help and how they, as middle school students, can personally help.  They will choose a country/area that they are interested in, find a poverty issue there, as well as an organization working there and learn practical ways they can help.  They will then creatively present the information and how they are helping to their peers in chapel.  They will also write a letter to someone in the organization to encourage them in what they are doing.

CONNECTIONS AND PERSPECTIVES:

Students are serving those in the world by practically helping those living in poverty. Students are challenged to look beyond themselves and empathize with others in their service.
